It's always an adventure to move out of the art journal and on to canvas. How will my favourite techniques work? Can I bring something to life that people will want to put on a wall? Or should my art just stay in a book?
This canvas had been hanging around for ages. First I did all the rectangle bits. It was all right, but needed something more. I was happy with the colours, but there was something missing. So I wrote on it.
And hated it.
I covered up the writing and added some circles, because who doesn't like circles? But there was still something missing, so it stood against the wall for months.
Then a couple of days ago I dragged it out, turning it this way and that, trying to work out what it needed. By turning it 90 degrees I found a space that just called out for a face.
Now it felt better.
I may add some words - just subtle ones - or I may not. Who can tell?
