My latest painting in "The Last Fleet" project is this huge painting of Gayundah. The canvas is 2 metres x 1.5 metres.
I had the canvas made up for me by Eckersleys and initially, when I saw the size of the canvas, I panicked, thinking how am I ever going to do justice to this painting on such a large canvas.
But, having purchased the canvas, I had no choice but to push on, so bit the bullet.
Step 1. I made a pencil drawing. Step 2. Took a photo of my drawing and uploaded it to my computer.
Step 3. Transferring the pencil drawing to my canvas by projection.
Step 4. Securing the canvas to my easel ready to paint. My dear husband secured the canvas to my easel for me but forgot to look at the front to make sure it was the right way up, which I thought extremely funny. But we righted it, and it is now ready to paint.
Step 5. The painting begins.
A smaller version of this painting can be commissioned. Contact Gayle for a quote.
