A special gift…

I was asked by a special lady to paint the ‘Prayer of Jabez’ as a birthday gift for her husband.

I decided to work onto a BLACK canvas for a change and use the background as negative space to create outlines – it also provides natural shading and texture.

As a practice I first did this small 15 x 15 cm painting… FUN!


And the finished product…

I think I’m going to do some more work using this technique, I really enjoyed it.
