Trying out different styles and art techniques can be fun and also relaxing. Before I start with a large painting though, and in this case very likely a canvas piece, I'm experimenting with views/colours/textures in oil-sketch-form, mostly painted on cardboard as they are quick little sketches. I cut some backing-board to approx. 6" x 4" and triple prime the painting surface. Perfect size for these little experiments.
This one is dry and I think it could make a good large canvas - what say you.
Of course, a large painting based on this, won't be 'exactly' the same -
every painting is slightly different when it comes to the final artwork,
but I'm sure you get the idea.
And talking of ideas...
I'm going to do a Giveaway with this little painting sketch. As rough and ready as it is, I reckon someone may like it - So if you go over to my Facebook newsfeed, the details will be there.
(Yes before you say it, when I originally set up my Facebook newsfeed,
I called it sketching.william, even though you can find me as Ann Hyde)
