This was painted last month and not posted... I've a few like that that I'm salting in here and there. There's a few more on my camera too that I need to get uploaded.
This was painted on a Luan panel like most of my stuff but this is the first one that I gessoed before painting. I like clear acrylic gesso because I love to use the natural wood tone as my ground. This ones surface was not great in that the paint layed on top of the gesso and I prefer a bit of absorbtion. Still the painting came out pretty well and I've since started sanding the gesso before I paint and that works well.
