In the next few weeks I will be painting a few larger works for Christmas exhibitions. I send all my paintings to auction only once, so, if you're quick you can pick up a few early Christmas presents for a really good price at Daily Paintworks. I'm happy to bulk ship, so contact me for a joint shipping cost.
This is an 8" x 10" Gallery Wrap Canvas. Gallery Wrap is where the canvas wraps around the edge of the stretcher, but no nails or staples are visible on the sides. I continue the scene around the edge, so when you view it from the side it has a 3D effect and is quite dynamic. These paintings can be hung without framing so are very cost effective. They also look spectacular framed with the edge still showing.

Acrylic paint has a tendency to flatten and suck onto the canvas. I use heavy body, top quality paint, but even so it requires more texture. Unlike Oil paint, In order to get a 3D effect, gel and texture must be added. I get impatient with all that faffing around and part way through this painting I picked up a palette knife and then a brush. I was enjoying the effect of varied and got quite carried away so I never got back to Julie's method. One day I'll try again with Oil paint, but in the meantime .....
The last photos show how I used "now you see it now you don't" secret interference pearl paint which shines only when it catches the light. I think this really captures the essence of the sun behind the clouds.
