A new (to me) surface
This is a new surface that I've never worked on before. First, I usually have made all my own canvases, though for the small daily paintings I am buying them. This painting is on a gessoed board - very smooth - no texture. I really questioned how it would take the paint. It was different than I'm used to, but it seemed to be OK. It also started out with a very white surface, which I toned slightly.
I think I prefer canvas. I just like the texture and how canvas takes paint. But, I think this is one of those "no right way" things - rather a matter of personal preference.
Bottle and Shell, 5 x 7" Oil on board.
