I have six oil paintings in progress, all at different stages in their layers, but all drying for a day or two…whilst exploring for spare canvases in my art cupboard ( my downstairs toilet…which is not usable as a loo, due to the storage it provides)I found a canvas I had covered in Daniel smith medium for watercolour. That will do me while the paint dries. I quickly visited paint my photo for some inspiration, and found this gorgeous cow. The Daniel smith medium worked well, but the application of watercolour, is a little different to conventional paper in the way it behaves, as it is very porous. Still it was fun. The background was created with salt, always great fun to throw on some salt, again not quite the usual effect due to the porous nature of the medium, good enough for me.
