All Systems Go

All Systems Go
24 x 36 oil 

A friend suggested I put large pieces of cardboard
 behind the canvas when painting larger  
to prevent the "bounce" affect.
It works.

I had more control and could focus more 
on the shapes and colors. 
For this one, I started with the bright orange side of the building
then compared all other colors to that. 

That is a new approach for me,
and I find it challenging and fun!

  1. Hi Nancy,
    I'm also a no-bounce girl. I buy a roll of canvas and then have my framer drymount it to gatorboard (just like mounting a poster)...currently working 48x54 this way! Been doing this for years!
