Let The Canvas Show

After working with oils, I finally decided that showing a little canvas is okay and is actually awesome like the picture to the left. That bit of white in this contemporary floral is plain ole canvas showing through.

Acrylic paint needs layers and when the paint doesn't fill the canvas, it looks very unfinished. How odd then is it that with oils, the colors so bold and colorful, pop more with a bit of white canvas showing?

The original is drying now and I'm not sure if I'll add another coat.

I probably will though as I have no issue covering up one masterpiece with another. The joy of painting is like that with me.

Oops did I sound oddly arrogant in my blog? I apologize, I don't think my work is awesome, it's just awesomely fun to do.
