Multimedia on Canvas

Sea and Sky

Sea and Sky

This one is almost more of a craft project than a painting. I haven’t created anything in a very long time due to working too much. Finally got a bit of downtime and found a box of beads and thread, so I started playing. This is a mix of gesso, cotton string, sand, micro-pigments and glaze, and acrylic paint on canvas.

It was fun to do. Really fun. I started it with the idea that I’d just get my hands used to handling material again, and I’d likely just throw it away. It turned out to be more fun than I thought it would, so I initialed it, called it Sea and Sky, and here it is. I under-exposed the detail shots so the glare of the the high-gloss medium didn’t bleach out the details.

Sadly, I have only a Nikon D3200 and an Asus Zenfone 8 Flip for cameras right now, so the shots are not the quality I’d like but I’m saving up for a full frame DSLR/Mirrorless rig. It’s just going to take time.
