teabag people II

Little Gem #8 and going strong - have to finish many more for this season's little gem series of 30 still... so here is teabag people number two - acrylic washes on stretched canvas 150 x 450 x 35mm or 6" x 14" x 1.5" - sealed with varnish for protection and long life.

The technique is the same as the previous one - used teabag prints which then form the foundation for a range of characters I've never met before... hi peoples!! mmm yes, I recognise the extrovert in there, the harlequin, the square, the exhibitionist, the innocent and the kite flier...oh wait, that was the teabag tag, but did you see mr positive?  He's the glass half full man..

2011 tip one: Direct sunlight is a no-no for paintings, so hang your precious art away from direct sunlight and not in close proximity to spotlights - if you can feel the heat, it's too close.  Over time paint may crack and colours may change and repair will prove costly if possible at all.  Have a peaceful 2011 and remember to floss ..e^)
