Latest mixed media canvas

Afternoon in the UK we are back to cold, wet and windy!!  Mind you, the Bank Holiday was glorious, so we shouldn't complain too much!

I thought I would blog another canvas I have made.

This one is much paler and gentle and is one I made just a few days after my dad's death.  I have used many layers of acrylics in cream and whites with some touches of yellow and blush.  I added some texture with some paste and this time I added an inclusion (top right).
 I added 4 jigsaw pieces which I painted and added a little gold foiling to the edges and some charcoal to ground the pieces.

I added some stronger colours to the bottom of the piece with oil pastels

The inclusion was made by cutting through the canvas and adding a matchbox tray which I painted and then added texture paste to blend it in with some acrylic, oil and charcoal to bring the piece together.

 I hope you like it.
Happy Crafting


  1. I really like your art work, particularly the inclusion. I would never have thought of doing something like that. The whole piece is very serene and comforting. I lost my father last August and might try creating something along the same line as yours, because I remember him as a quiet, gentle man. Thank you for sharing. Sally (no blog)

    1. Thanks Sally, it was an experience painting it as I used one of his canvas'.
