work in progress (WIP)

I wet the canvas and I covered it in moist gesso, so far its very much like a wet into wet watercolor. Then I apply the paint while the gesso is damp. This takes very strong pigment because the gesso will act as white paint diluting the color and saturation. One has to make sure not to over mix. If you do over mix the gesso and the paint, the values will all be very much the same.

Next I pulled the gesso over the top of the paint in a dry brush fashion. Now I’ll let it dry. Check back with me to see how I complete this painting. I’ll finish it in the next few days.
