Brush strokes! So fun to create with bold brush strokes. This painting has a very contemporary look to it. 8x10 oil on hardboard.
I hate prep work but it has to be done. I am preparing panels for painting by gluing linen to the surface. I am experimenting with gatorboard and also using birch panels. Although it takes up time I think it is worth it in money saved. My husband cut the gatorboard and birch for me in various sizes. I bought primed linen at Jerry's Artarama with a 40% off coupon. Cutting the linen is the biggest hassle. But I will have loads of beautiful panels to paint on. WooHoo!
