When I get home ...


I'm not sure I have shared this painting... it might look familiar as I used some of it for my site logo. I used bathroom tile adhesive mixed with acylic paint to create a bit of texture, it's not fell off the canvas yet!

I love all your paintings but this one has to be my favorite with its combination of rolling hills and lovely colors.

Fantastic piece! I am glad your creativity expanded to the usage of materials as well... and I do agree that bathroom tile adhesive will last a LONG TIME ^^

I'm so glad you shared this with us! The texture is just wonderful, and I like how you used the same color in the sky that's in the field. It's really a fine painting! nancy

Love this painting.... the idea for putting the texture on the canvas is really clever - is that a commonly used method or one you made up yourself? It's a lovely blustery scene, I like it a lot!

Thanks for all your lovely comments. Much appreciated! I've done a couple of paintings using tile adhesive. I found that if you mask off an area, apply the adhesive with a pallete knife and while the adhesive is still damp, remove the tape - you get a nice painting area. Thanks to Leslie P for picking up on the blustery bit... I did the sketching for this while sat on the North Yorkshire steam railway. I loved the way the train made the long grass swirl as you sped past. A nice way to spend the day :-)

I really like the color scheme in this painting, and I think it was very creative to think of the tile adhesive for texture. What is the size of it?

This is super! Great feelings come up looking at it.

Hi, thinking of using tile adhesive. Concerned about paint reacting and/or stability.... Four years in how are they doing? Sally
