I spied this couple in the White English garden, an Arts and Crafts inspired garden . I liked the image so much I drew it first (unheard of, for me!)
It reminded me of an alfresco wedding...a perfect aisle!
I have taken possession of a shipment of canvas.....six different weights and tooth (how rough/smooth) and am experimenting with them to see which ones I prefer. I have gessoed a few pieces with black and am playing with a dark ground again....mmmm. I am always amazed how free I am to whack paint onto a dark surface and yet plain white makes me nervous, timid even.
