Look a REAL painting!!



A real canvas, that's now hanging beside my desk - how cool is this?!?!
I had to try out my acrylic inks on canvas, and I'm thrilled with how this has turned out. I left the cling film (SaranWrap) on overnight just to be sure... and the organic shapes are gorgeous!
And wow! These colours! They lose nothing of their intensity during the drying process. And in this technique, the open spaces are as important as the shapes - all created by the manipulation of the cling film while the ink is wet. Love it! Just love it!!
