ABAA - Canvas Art
This is my entry for the ABAA framed canvas challenge.
I was lacking inspiration for my canvas and after a really busy week was feeling very pressured to create something this evening before the deadline.
I took inspiration from the English poets book that I bought for 30p in a charity shop when we made the wooden blocks last year, wanting to do something in a similar vein i decided to start there.
I found this picture of Robert Bridges and instantly fell in love with this image of a man who looks so troubled. I dont remember ever noticing it before, but i feel it has alot of depth.
Its a picture that provokes thought for me, and i am extremely pleased with my finished result.
This will now hang in my sitting room, where i can always see it. I adore it and havent been this happy with a piece of my own work for such a long time.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
