At the moment Im really lucky to be doing a residency in the Endangered Studios in Callan. My plan was to work with paint instead of falling into my comfort zone in fabric. I have been using acrylics and oils for the first time). As the time has gone on I realised that I have to combine paint with fabric and that canvas is too rigid and flat for me. Also that I really missed texture.
So I changed from canvas to fabric and in these paintings with the advice of Patrick (a truly amazing Endangered Painter) I painted pva (to prevent a fire) onto the fabric and then used oils.
I love the texture of the fabric with the paint and the fact that the paint hasn't obliterated the fabric.
