Have you heard the saying that nothing is whiter than the white of a blank test paper? Michelle Reynolds bravely faced the white of 30 blank canvases on Day One of her challenge. Michelle reports on preparing her canvases and ‘colouring white’:
I was very excited to be chosen as one of the participants [of the 30x30x30 Challenge] and have been looking forward to getting started. There were so many questions that popped up as I began:
How many should I start to prepare?
Where will they all dry?
Do I have enough paint or will a quick trip to the art shop be in order?
What am I going to paint on this first set?
Do they have a spare 30 canvases for my other ideas that would like to be painted!?
See that white little square, bottom, middle of the paintings? Yes, this pic shows a size comparison between the largest paintings I’ve created and the 8 inch or 20cm square canvases that I will work on for the 30x30x30. Size is only one of my challenges!
I decided to prepare 12 canvases with the basic layers which will build up into a painting of depth…
Another covering layer will be added then I’ll have fun stamping and dripping and deciding what they will become. Oh such fun and such a great challenge too…
