Ringstead Rust

I’ve been playing around with rust.

Beach Clean Art

These pictures will only exist as photographs, which might in time be printed on canvas or paper.

The background painting is 16″x16″, acrylic paint and sand mixed with PVA on canvas

Which photograph do you think would look best printed on canvas?

  2. And I would have said no 2 until I read Curlsnskirls comment and looked again at no 3 again and it’s now a close thing!

    • Thank you Cathy. If it wasn’t so expensive to have them printed on canvas I would print all of them. Number three seems most popular here.


      • I know what you mean about the price – I have been looking at how I could use photos outside… printed on aluminium is looking like the best option so far

        • Wow! That sounds exciting – I’ll have to look into that one. Thanks!!!!!


          • It was on Aldi’s site where I looked and no doubt there are others so I will do some more probing – not cheap, but they would look good!

            • I Googled it and found a couple of sites – I think I’ll have to try one – looks fab! Thank you so much for the idea.


              • I have bought photo products through Aldi before so looked there first and the aluminium ones sound as if they would be OK outside. Their photo service is really efficient too. Do let me know what alternatives you find as I know you can get outdoor canvases but I don’t know where or how much

                • I Googled it and and came up as the top two for aluminium, came up for canvases with colours guaranteed for 3 years.


                  • Thanks for those links – I might email the outdoor canvas people to confirm what the expected life might be, although the HD aluminium ones look to be the best bet. Do you think you will do something with the (no 3) photo of your recent beach art?


  3. I love the first one – the rust really contrasts well with the turquoise background. Would make a lovely piece of art.

  4. Love them both, but surely the fish is too cute for words! That would be my choice for printing to canvas. The second photo has a very nice warmth to it also. Can’t help but repeat…clever as ever Sandra!!

  5. Enjoyed them all, but especially the last. Thought, bird in flight with wire for nest building. Am going to vote for the third, as to me it seems almost a combination of 1 & 2, but can’t say why. Have the feeling it’ll grow on you. (If that makes sense!)

  7. the first one really make me think of the Callanish standing stones against the sky, I like the 3rd looking across the surface too, Frances

    • Oh what a wonderful association with the stones – I’m thrilled to know that! I just looked them up on Google images – so inspiring. I’m going to see if I can take that forward into another painting – can’t thank you enough Frances. ❤ So glad you like the third one, I think that might be my favourite.

  8. Oh, I love these! The rust with sandy turquoise backgrounds really pop.

  9. These are wonderful! I think the last two would be particularly great on canvas (and I love the little swimmer in the bottom arrangement).
