Stretched Canvas

$0.00

Fine art print on bright white, fine poly-cotton blend, matte canvas using latest generation Epson archival inks. Individually trimmed and hand stretched museum wrap over 1-1/2" deep wood stretcher bars. Includes wall hanging hardware.

This began with a plan. Then I had to leave it, because that never works for me. I came back to this later and allowed more intuitive marks to take over and I think this might be my favorite piece to date. Hm.

This is great! I love the colors and the layer over layer style...

Really nice! It does look much looser than the others but hasn't lost clarity because of it.
And it's so true that images that start off badly often turn out to be the best ones because you are more willing to take risks with them along the way!

lovely Angela ;)

thanks for the great feedback ladies! I appreciate it. Heather, I like that point that you're more willing to take risks since you sort of chalked it up to begin with ... I hadn't thought of it that way.

Beautiful - so much depth.

It's a beaut, Angela.

Thanks, Paula and Geoffrey! Much appreciated. Yes, Paula and Efi ... it is more layered ... I wonder why I never got that before ... learning curve, I suppose:) And I love the hot pressed Arches (vs. cold) seems to allow for it more.

This is cool! Looks like alligator eyes... Myself I like the tooth of cold press. Boy the hot press seems to work rather nicely for you:-)

Hey, Catherine ... thanks! I just bought more of the cold and ROUGH by accident ... ever use that one? I might use it as a base for gessoed pieces (acrylic/oil?).

I love the colors. So nice to look at on a hot summer day!

I was going to ask you what kind of paper you used - the cold press does work really well for you. I've recently started trying to work on some thick Chinese rice paper and it is making me insane- it soaks up the paint like crazy and bleeds everywhere, I feel completely out of control.

I love the rough paper. My favorite is a huge piece of 300 lb cold press with a natural edge. I have to order it because the local stores don't carry it anymore. My dad says that a good watercolor is a "happy accident." This is true when working with this kind of paper. No control, lots of accidents! lol I do blither on and on...

Hi Angela:) thanks what a nice way to view it:) Heather the one above is actually HOT press (smooth). Yeah, I don't think i would enjoy the rice paper ... maybe for soaking colors and creating collaged pieces, but I was very irritated by it when I tried:) I agree with you dad, Catherine! I tell my son that all the time, some of my best stuff is from an accidental mark or whatever!
