This is one of Nigel's favourite pictures and I thought I could put that on a canvas.
I covered the canvas in texture paste and then painted in a rough mix of white and a little black. Next I added hessian which I covered in gesso and then added a rough mixture of white and black. When dried I used bubble wrap to put slightly darker paint. I printed the picture on cream linen paper, roughed the edges and added some sewing and bead detail.
A bit of lace, pearls, black paint around the edges and I have to say I am pleased with the result. As is Nigel and it sits in the conservatory.
