Original Contemporary Modern Art Abstract Paintings by Filomena de Andrade Booth

Sea and Sand
Acrylic on textured canvas

Sea and Sand measures 24"x24".  This heavily textured canvas is stretched on 1.5" wood bars.  The sides are painted a rich, shimmery black/gray Micaceous Iron Oxide.  The painting is wired and does not need to be framed.  It is signed on the side, dated and signed on the back.  A protective acrylic varnish has been applied to protect the beauty of this painting from dust and harmful UV rays.

A Certificate of Authenticity is included.

To gesso or not to gesso, that is the question!

One of the things I love to do before I even begin a painting, is to texture the canvas.  You should always prime your canvas before painting.  Priming, or gessoing, the canvas helps seal the canvas and provides a barrier between the paint and canvas fabric.  I like that it also helps to hide the weave pattern of the canvas.  Some acrylic gessos are heavier in body than others.  I like to use Golden  and many artists love Utrecht gesso.  Liquitex is good also but is more "liquidy" than others.  To create a thicker, richer surface to paint on, I frequently mix molding paste in with the gesso.  This is just one of the tips I teach my students in my workshops on the very first day.  Everyone has fun playing with the texture and can't wait to start painting as soon as the surface of the canvas is dry!
