Continuing on my theme this week, let me introduce you to my new best friend: Six by ten feet of cotton, gesso and wood with a healthy dose of wire for the stability every artist seeks in a new relationship.
These two images show me, first stretching the canvas onto the stretcher bars and the second image after priming the canvas with an undercoat painting.
The second image is likely a bit shocking as a contemporary painting is not my goal, but this base coat serves a purpose in the finished painting.
Of course I am not going to tell anything about what I have planned of the painting itself. You'll just have to follow it's progress.
