My art is a reflection of my inner landscape. I let my heart and my soul direct my brush and I fill my paintings and creations with love. I am guided and inspired by Spirit, Nature and Mother Earth and all the beauty and colour that surrounds us every day!!!

I hope you enjoy your journey through my blog as I have enjoyed each creation.
With love and light, Belinda

The Art of Texture

Before you start painting, to give your work a richer more 3d effect, put down some texture. One basic but very effective technique is just to glue some fabric or canvas onto your stretched canvas or board, then put a good thick layer of texture past or gesso over the top. You can scratch into the gesso or add some sand etc to add another dimension. This will give you a beautiful rich textural base to then create your masterpiece upon.
