Trying a Box Canvas

A Vase of Spring

Oil on Canvas 8x8"

February has brought longer hours of daylight and that means more time to paint in natual light.
In the garden the signs of Spring are already showing - the snowdrops through and other bulbs beginning to grow.
And it's impossible to resist buying bunches of daffodils from the local gift shop.
And it's impossible not to try painting them.

This time though I've been using box canvases and trying out ways to paint the edges, trying black at first but settling on using the background colour.
I'm not sure whether this type of support is for me. I think I prefer a canvas with a frame.
