I gave myself a brief not to spend a single penny, not to have any wing-nuts, to have a facility to protect the painted boards until I got home and for it to be quick and easy to erect and dismantle. David & Eileen Flinn gave me the perspex last week. The backing board was salvaged from the summer house. The stand was a laser spirit level setup that David & Eileen gave as a birthday present about a hundred years ago...I used the laser to get the footings right while building our extension...I never used the stand but always felt I would in the future. The palette mixing tray was made from an old drawing board I've had kicking around for longer than I care to remember. The edging strips are left over from a job I did a number of years ago.The black paint I've had for about ten years and I'm surprised it's still okay. The white primer undercoat paint was bought about six years ago. Total cost including tacks and glue = zero.
Here we go, another 30 paintings in 30 days challenge.
Let's see what I can learn this time.
8 inches x 8 inches
Oil on box canvas
I'll attempt to be as loose as I can as I get further into the challenge. This is a scene from Sene...a small town on the coast in the Morbihan region of France. I love the way families here spend time together.
