Finish

I sold a work on paper to someone at my work who saw it on Facebook. I sold it at cost price as I would rather people appreciate my work than hang onto it. The works on paper have been very interesting. They are more illustrative and refined whereas the canvas work is more detailed and layered. The paper works are quite meticulous but due to the paper I am using I can’t layer as much as I can on canvas. I could use canvas paper but the finish isn’t as beautiful. Because I spray my backgrounds on canvas the finish ends up better than it would if I didn’t. That I think is the key differentiator for the canvas pieces. Normally an artist would need to build a finish at least in traditional painting as the finish is very important. A lot of amateur painters ignore finish whereas it is the key element as well as the content. It could also be because of my own exposure to painting work at uni. The best painters really took a lot of time to get the works finish correct. With my aerosol background being high build I don’t need to keep layering it. It really saves time.
