The Big Canvas

This is it! My first real canvas (as opposed to burlap and striped fabric).

It’s 40x30x3 1/2 inches deep.

Corners tucked.

Ready for gesso.

Still working on the stripes at the same time.

Using the big brush for this.

Thawing out the gesso.

I could hear the birds outside the window as I worked. Happy day!

    I’ve been stretching a couple of canvasses for Miki recently, and I feel I’m really rubbish at it! Looks like you’ve done a great job Shelley!

      Thanks Kev! I was proud of myself for finally giving it a try. The front of this piece is almost done, but I haven’t started the sides of the wrapped canvas yet. I used 1×4’s to make it extra deep.
