week 279

Didn’t accomplish much this past week, but this is a couple clues to what is in the planning stages.

stretcher bars, folded canvas and a peacock feather laying on my bed

I made use of the Michaels’ gift-card that one of my sister-in-laws bought me for Christmas. Bought a couple pairs of 48″/122cm stretcher bars and a bit of canvas. The feather isn’t part of it but will be part of a future project.

Everything arrived yesterday, where one pair of bars arrived then five hours later, the rest arrived. The second box of stretchers was taller than me, and before I disassembled the box and put it in the recycling bin, I was taking selfies with the empty box.

I know I need to put on a cross brace, because of the size of the bars, and am probably going to have to build one.

I finally put the two studies in a frame (used a cheap 20×28, so the white space all around is obvious and I can focus on them) and currently examining how to mesh them together. This was the first drawing I made and it’s a total mess and will probably either become more complicated or much more simplier. The cool colours will be shades of orange and/or red and the warms are blue and/or greens, and will soften into each other.
