For this one, I wanted to break away from my usual illustrative style and try a more relaxed and painterly approach. The final result varies just a little from the video, as I went back and polished up a few things before I felt it was finished.
Go Fish (Four) is an original acrylic painting on 10 x 10 inch triple-primed, 11oz pre-stretched canvas, back-wrapped on 1-1/2 inch deep stretcher bars.
The subject matter is diverse for each of my paintings – basically, whatever strikes my fancy – yet they all have a familiar, whimsical, illustrative quality to them. My paintings have found new homes across Canada, in the United States, Germany and England.
With the 1-1/2 inch depth, the painting can hang without frames and appear to have some weight to it. Edges are painted.
