Update: Canvas Bag & Untitled

Bag with yellow pattern

The bag is almost done! I forgot that painting on canvas is difficult unless your paint is watery enough to travel and sink into the fabric. A couple pattern units later I finally remembered and it made the rest of the work a lot easier (and less frustrating). It’s difficult to tell in the photo, but the yellow paint sat very nicely over the teal. I’m not sure if after the first iron/wash this effect will still show up, but it is something I had intended in the initial sketch. I hope it stays :/


The painting is still in progress and no where near finished. It’s partly because I’m not sure how I want to use the watercolor in terms of textural effect. Do I want everything to be very smooth and blocky, or have everything bleed and blend together? I should probably just shut up and paint…
