Irresistible Canvas Process

I got a late start today. Honestly, I would have rather been off to bed instead of heading upstairs to paint. It’s been a long day. I will say though, I’m pleased with how it ended up.  

 Ok. I didn’t start out making this canvas. Actually I started making 4 tiny canvases.  

 I wasn’t feeling it though so I put those aside for another day. I’ll share them, just probably not as a 366 Days of Art project. 

  Anyways. So today I worked on a 6″ X 12″ canvas using my Liquitex basics again. Lots of reds and oranges and touches of yellow and bright green. Threw in some deep hookers green for contrast.  

 More doodles in the Neocolor II pastels and the Faber-Castell Pitt pens.  

 And a single, big black and white flower. I used my Golden carbon black as the base. I’ve decided I don’t like the Liquitex Mars black that comes in the basics kit. It’s not black enough and I really like that the Golden is a heavy body paint. 

I’m thrilled with today’s art and am super glad I pushed myself to do it.
