If you love canvas paintings or landscape art, you’ve come to the right place!
I love painting onto canvas, as you have to really focus on the colour you use, the form of your paintings, and you can’t rely on Photoshop to edit mistakes!
Away from canvas paintings (which I’ll talk about in just a second) I’ve been creating everything from new blog posts, creating new artwork for my illustration portfolio and also designing new ways of showing off my greetings cards.
If you haven’t already seen it, my previous post shares the colour that 10 artistic masterpieces have used, and I’m really happy with how that post it’s looking.
It’s one of my biggest, most researched articles to late, and not only is it helping you guys out, it’s also helped my own colour theory – which is a great by-product!
Today though, I want show my new canvas paintings which I produced a while back.
New Canvas Paintings
I’ve finally managed to sit down and capture high quality photos of these canvas paintings, which show them in the best light. These are both produced with gouache and watercolour, and depict a Hampshire landscape and exotic seaside scene.
I often take my sketchbook when I’m out and about, and after sketching the Hampshire landscape from a recent study, I decided to paint it onto canvas, which you can see below.
Both of these canvases are produced with watercolour as a base, and gouache to form the bulk of the painting, depicting the trees, rolling hills and greenness of Hampshire.
I’m really happy with how this one has turned out, and as you can see from my sketch I think it works well on canvas too.
Exotic Canvas Painting
My other canvas painting represents a scenic, sunny and exotic scene, overlooking the sea and colourful landscape. Using warm and cool colours together to communicate this summery painting, I have used one of my old sketches in my sketchbook which I took on holiday a few years ago (which is the scene from our villa).
I’ve used cool and warm colours within this painting, and I feel it would make a great impact within any home setting – just saying ;-).
I’m really happy with how these two canvas paintings are looking, and if you like to see more, including my greetings cards to art prints, head over to my Shop.
I’ll also be adding new shop images which you can see in the near future – so do keep your eyes peeled for that.
