As you can see, this is an incredibly textured canvas. I wasn’t happy with the previous painting on it, so gessoed over it and started a new painting.
I was keen to do another ‘window’ so worked out a composition which would be busy, and work with all the added texture.
I could have called it ‘Red Tulips’ but it was too obvious, and I was liking the soft dove on the window sill, so it’s named after him.
Slowly slowly it came together and finally I decided it was done. For now anyway. Bit of fun. And cheerful.
