Canvases

I played a bit more with the 4 canvases from Jodi’s workshop.
My canvases are ‘coffee themed’. I used a normal pencil to draw some extra letters and flowers.
Since I had to fix the doodles and as I didn’t and still don’t have any fixative, I used hairspray.
At least I have a nice smell !

Creating those surfaces is something like ‘instant continuous gratification’.

The canvases were already great without the colour but even better with the added colour.
And it’s not finished yet but I have to wait till the painting has dryed.

My Modigliani-style portrait from Pam' workshop looks like this for the moment, I haven’t work a lot on her :
I only did some background painting and stamping.

I like your quote "instant continuous gratification" :) Love how they are developing, and I'm even more happy you are having fun with the creative process!

You are doing a lovely job on your workshop projects, two classes at once and keeping up with both beautifully:-) I just checked out your finished lady and she has evolved in a wonderful way.
