Another over painting!

Remember this, I was so proud when I did this , no room for sentiment or canvases!

Yes it’s the same canvas although even on the wall it looks smaller somehow.


Remember I began painting this one in the night, I said I would probably edit and delete parts!  It’s far from done but here is the before and work in progress



  1. Aren’t they all works in progress?!!! And is there such a thing as overpainting?!! i say, if You feel it, then it’s valid!!! I really enjoy Your paintings!!! Even Your in the middle of the night ones. Hey. The muse strikes when she strikes! It is what it is!!! Paint on!!! Cheers! 🙂

  2. One day, when you are dead and famous someone will look at your paintings, notice that there is more to it than meets the eye. And to their amazement/horror/delight discover they are overpaintings. And wonder. Just like they do with Da Vinci…. I know, I know, it’s just where my mind took me looking at your works in progress 🙂

  3. I love how you overpaint things, Elaine. I get so attached to my creations I worry that if I make one mark too many I will spoil it. I do (make one mark too many, I know) but then couldn’t think of overpainting. You are very brave and very bold! I suppose you have your photos of them on the blog, so it’s all good!

    1. It really is a case of not enough room, I must have painted over a hundred canvases, painting is not a cheap hobby either so I overpaint the ones that I don’t adore. I have to confess that I destroyed the Sister Mary, sleeping/ alive angel. It freaked me out 😳
