When I got to meet with her again, I got to see the canvas she had got being stretched out on a wood frame. I never knew what it took to create a painting or anything on canvas, so learning about how canvas was treated was new to me and fun to see. The next step was sketching out the idea. I was lucky enough to watch her work her magic (in her studio) using an orange colored pencil on the canvas and adding characteristic features later to be painted.
The finished art piece is 8ft tall and 6 ft wide.
A big giant thank you to Valentine for taking the time for creating this!!
Mothers Day, A Tintype Event
On this particular day on West Lewis St, they were having a Lavender Stroll. This was also a first to me and will probably now and forever be going to events on this street. A lot of the stores were having sales and interesting things to watch. I didn't get to see much of the street due to doing tintypes, but my mum walked around and loved everything.
Here are some BTS photos from the event.
