from the Beginning – again! Friend Carol pitched in to help gesso
canvases in preparation to paint – behind the scenes studio work – the
part that no one sees or considers when looking at a finished painting!
GESSO RECIPE: Gesso, Payne’s Grey – enough color to create a toned
ground. If necessary, thin with water so that coats do not leave heavy
brush marks on canvas. Dry thoroughly between each coat. Mix in coffee
can – enough for two or three coats to cover canvas. Seal up remainder
and put in fridge to keep for next use.
