I have had this canvas lurking around for a long, long time. I’ve tried doing several things with it now; mostly trying to come up with an abstract piece for the bedroom in various shades of brown. Which hasn’t work either time I’ve tried it and turned the canvas a rather sloppy pooh colour. So I axed that idea and slapped a whole load of blue and white acrylic on it for a first coat so that I can do some thing else on it instead when it is dry – something that I am more comfortable with. Whoever said abstract was easy, lied!
I was a little excited and wanted to share my progress picture with you all.
I also wanted to ask you all something. Do any of you use marker pens? And if so, what sort do you use? So far I’ve only used Sharpies for the doodle aspect of my work, but I’m not so sure they really stand up to the challenge. He nibs fray easily and they very quickly lose their quality. Don’t get me wrong they’re good for other surfaces, like card and thick paper, but I’m not so sure about textured canvas. So if anyone has any tips or suggestions, I am all ears.
