Paula Cravens explores acrylic painting, mixed media, collage and the meaning of the universe
Friday, March 22, 2013
We held a life drawing session at our art group the other night. I love the practice and really like the freedom of line in quick sketches. I decided to make a painting out of this one. I printed off the sketch on paper to fit a 12x 16 canvas ( I had to divide the sketch in two and print both halves). Then, I made a quick carbon onto my canvas. I was hoping to keep that free line but I don't think I achieved it.
I used lots of collagey bits. The pose is quite twisted...it looks odd but she was sitting like this. Oh to be young and flexible!
I am an acrylic painter exploring color and texture. I like horses, Canadian wildlife, old trucks, bold women, kind men, tequila and cashews. Most paintings are for sale. Contact me for prices and shipping if you are interested in purchasing a painting. And thanks for viewing my blog!
