It's 60 x 45 and, as you can see, involves a city scene. The city in question is Montreal - circa 1735 or so. It's not meant to depict a specific street, but people from Montreal will recognize some of the buildings.
On occasion, I shop at Value Village (a non-profit second had store) where I buy a lot of second-hand damask and cotton tablecloths for dyeing and sometimes find lengths of fabric) and a couple of months ago I found a long length (perhaps 100 inches) of untreated canvas. I decided to use it for this piece.
It's the first time I've used canvas, treated or otherwise - so I was quite interested to see how it would work. I can tell you before I've got anything done that it's quite heavy, and is going to be challenging to quilt!
I applied gesso first, and when it was dry, drew my city directly on the canvas as above.
And then I got my paints ready for the sky.
Looking deep and dark, no? Stay tuned...
