Oil Practice — Book Painting!

Oil Practice --- Book Painting!

There is debate about E-readers beginning to make books obsolete.
The local ‘free-store’ [dump] is FULL of unused, once-loved books.

When I am practising painting [or just feel like mixing it up], I use book covers instead of canvas or boards.


  • Using outdated/unreadable books can save paper and canvas.
  • No energy is used to produce something new.
  • It gives books a new way to be loved and appreciated.
  • Self-supporting artwork (no frame needed!)
  • Adds interesting dynamic to your work

Try it out for yourself! Post some pictures! Tell me what you think!
