Falling Pears, fini
Next step on this one is to let it dry completely (I'm using WindsorNewton and Maimeri-blu oil paints mixed with liquin, so it will be a quicker dry) and then stretch it. I think finished size will be 12 x 26, but I may be able to squeeze out an extra inch in either direction. I bought 13 and 27 inch strips, just in case. One thing about working with canvas fabric is that you can cut it to any size you like. Since I work more instinctively with my paintings, I find I often need to adust the composition of my work after it is complete. Stretching it myself allows for those little corrections.
