Then Came a LARGER Canvas

A couple of years ago from somewhere or other - I found some 'COURAGE' soon after this, it was lost again.  At this time I purchased some rather large canvas from car boot sales, that I could paint over without worrying of the cost of the canvas.  This was my first, I painted all the outside with black acrylic paint, then added some colour and scrapped about........... then lost my nerve, eventually put it away.
Two days ago I got it out, assembled the easel, dug out a groundsheet for the floor and had some fun..
Influenced by Flora Bowley (who's book hasnt turned up yet, but hopefully will tomorrow) and the blog post I mentioned by Iris, I began some free painting.
I did a bit more today, and ended up at this stage............
Not so sure it will stay like this, who knows what will happen tomorrow.............  I cannot begin to tell you just how much fun this is to do.
The canvas although HUGE to me, is not as big as some I have seen worked on.  It is 30" by 20".

Thank you for reading, and thank you to my fabulous new arty friends at Art 101 for visiting and leaving comments - love seeing all your work each day:)


  1. I cannot wait to see what changes next. Love your art Lynda! <3

  2. Thank you Stephanie, wish you lived nearer. The canvas is now on a cover up and new direction, but still on going.
