The locally made vase was the focal point for this large watercolour, that I filled with berries, ivy leaves and “supported” on a colourful cloth, prior to painting. Artist’s wtercolours and rag watercolour paper were used in this work, which is available.
Commissioned by an orchard owner. Both of us were very pleased with this work. Now in a Private Collection.
Purists probably will throw up their hands in horror, but I have found that by painting the back of a finished fully dry) oil painting, with a low grade matt white acrylic paint, that (a) it taughtens up the canvas and (b) it reduces the porosity of the canvas, thus giving the artwork a more luminiscent appearance.
