I went into a luxury art supply store today and picked up a beautifully made canvas to start my painting again on. Then I put it back down and went into The Works and got 4 canvas boards for a tenner instead, and this is the result so far.
Starting off with a black as the ground layer (not from the tube, don’t worry Mrs Johnson), instead of a darkish red and I’m already feeling better about this, I’m glad I resolved to paint over it.
Also here’s a picture of it in context. I cleared out my garden shed of all the resident crap and moved all my art crap in to replace it.
Man needs his hovel.
