A new canvas finished – I had a great time painting. It took me quite a while to finish it deciding when to finish :) That is always the hardest part, don’t you think?

I used Liquitex Soft Body and Heavy Body Acrylic Paints as well as Markers, Inks and Spray Paints. I made a lot of marks with the Liquitex Freestyle Palette knife – I love using it to create texture and marks into the wet but also into the dried paint.

I am thinking about having this one scanned, too, and make it available as prints. What do you think? (I will add the prints to my shop as soon as they are ready.)

Wishing you an amazing start into the week!

Heimathafen or…Hamburg*End(si)e Exhibition Canvas

Another canvas for my exhibition in August here in Hamburg. This one is actually 16″ by 24″ big (40cm x 60cm) . I figured out that for canvases in that big size I need an easel but I guess for the time being here in Hamburg I might not invest in one or maybe I should…mmmh…mhhh – LOL…never shy of an excuse to go to the art supply store ;) .

It is a collage with acrylic paints, acrylic inks and acrylic markers . It was a slow process on this canvas …It moved several times in the apartment so I could just look at it because I wasn’t too happy in the beginning and needed to figure out what it was. It was the ship on the right that made me crazy…something was badly off, but now it is done. I really like the colors- and I know they are not very usual for me .

I am sure you got it figured out, this is the Hamburg harbor – a bit part of our city, and the title is home port. Now working on the next canvas which is even bigger…let’s see how this goes- LOL

Have a wonderful day

Hugs

Remember or…Excited for the roads to be traveled

Played a bit around in my art journal using my new Oldtimer Stencil and Liquitex Acrylic Inks. I  collaged a bit on the background and tried some new stamps I found in a junk yard kinda store in the neighbor hood and then sprayed with Liquitex Spray inks over the oldtimer stencil and then rubbed over the Acrylic Inks-

Love how intense the colors got and how the spray painted areas got so much dimension.

    I love the colors you used for this Nat. My day goes so much nicer if I make time to create (even for just 15 minutes).
