Key to the Cellar




Hard to believe that my Wine and Song series has made it to number 9. This latest work is on a stretched canvas 50cm x 50cm. It is an excellent quality triple gesso canvas that I had in the cupboard for the one day when I might paint with acrylics and as this has never happened I decided to use it for my watercolour and collage piece. I added a coat of Golden Absorbent ground before I started to make it receptive to water and pigment. Now its fully dry and photographed I will be adding the gloss varnish.
