Whilst creating some beach clean art I realised I needed more rust – so off I went on Saturday evening to gather and clean.
Wondering how I would attach the rust pieces – the background needs softening a bit with more texture.
So excited about this little gem of rusty wire with old netting
but how to mount it
and how do I treat the background, perhaps soft watery greys.
I think it hints at jellyfish.
Update: Frances of Island Threads says this picture reminds her of the Callanish Standing Stones, which gives me a shiver of excitement! I looked them up on Google images and now I’m itching to try a painting with them as inspiration. This photo by David Ross caught my eye
These pictures will only exist as photographs, which might in time be printed on canvas or paper.
The background painting is 16″x16″, acrylic paint and sand mixed with PVA on canvas
Which photograph do you think would look best printed on canvas?
(all this fitted into one carrier bag)
Aluminium dishes, cans and bottle recycled.
Another tobacco pouch complete with tobacco (composted).
Lots of lovely rusty bits.
Collected on 28th July 2016 with my son, daughter and 6 grandchildren.
The children started off looking for pebbles to paint but they all soon got just as keen on finding bits and pieces for my beach-clean collection. Despite the beach looking fairly clean, we had a carrier bag full by the time we had walked to the end.
