I have about 2 yards of canvas on my table ready to apply a coat of gesso.
I covered almost all the canvas with the container of gesso I had. The gesso didn’t seem to be drying so I took it outside in the sun and laid it on the grass. It was dry in no time.
When I brought it back inside and put it on the table I put felt rather than plastic under it. I started to paint with no plan in mind. When I am designing something I often start with no plan in mind. This is also how I work when I am quilting a quilt.
I have the entire gessoed area of the canvas painted with the first layer of paint.
I have added a second layer of paint to the piece. I used random designs.
I now have 3 layers of painting with more random designs.
This is a closer view of the fourth layer of design. The colors don’t look quite the same in each picture as the sun changed its angle in the sky while I was painting and by the time I finished painting it was very bright. I don’t know if I will add anything else. I am going to look at this for a while before I decide.
I also don’t know what I am going to do with this yet.
Originally I thought I’d cut it up into smaller pieces but I like the total look so I don’t think I’ll cut it into smaller units.
I may cut off part of it – and then again I may not!
