I’ve recently discovered burlap canvases, well not ‘discovered’ them as I’m pretty sure that they’ve been around for a couple of years, but I’ve got round to buying and using burlap canvases for my attempts at painting. And I have to say I do find them very condusive to create quite neat paintings.
These four are each on a 6″x6″x1.5″ burlap canvas and, like most of my paintings, I have no idea what the final outcome is meant to be and you can hang or display it anyway you want it (that’s the way you need it-sorry, Journey’s playing on the radio and my mind just went there!). For me, I find it easier to paint on burlap if I just squeeze a goodly amount of paint onto the canvas and then skoosh it around with a paint brush or a palette knife or both! The canvas is literally your canvas. So enjoy the paintings and I hope to be posting more soon, though I may be a while. I’m in court next week due to damaging a Chinese restaurant. I’m being charged with wonton destruction.
