Your pictures: Canvas
Each week, we publish a gallery of readers' pictures on a set theme. This week it is "Canvas".
Ron Newman: "This was taken in the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg in 2008. The young artist was totally engrossed in her task, despite constant interest from visitors to the museum."
Daniel Furon: "This tent made of tight canvas was covering a whole house in order to fumigate bugs."
Mike Finn: "The statue of Gustav Holst seemingly conducts the tents at the Cheltenham Literature Festival."
Ben Zabulis: "A young street artist in Amsterdam creates a chalk version of the Mona Lisa. I’ve always thought that even though I took this picture in 1988, it’s one of the best of its kind that I’ve seen."
Wendy Walker: "Children at Zimpeto Children's Centre in Maputo, Mozambique, tell me about their dormitories, using the playground sand as their chosen medium of expression."
John Egan: "A building that has been used as a canvas in Digbeth, Birmingham."
Jenny Downing: "This is one of those all-glass office blocks, caught in bright sunshine, reflecting and distorting the buildings opposite into an abstract painting."
This photograph by Andrew Fawcett captures a canvas on the move.
