Stretched new canvas

Just finished preparing my new canvas for my painting based on the ‘Solitary Figure’ explorations shared on this blog. I found little raised bubbles where I hadn’t quite stretched it enough so painted the back with plain water and let it dry naturally.┬áThat certainly did the trick and I’m really pleased with it, all the imperfections are gone.┬áSo watch for developments on this blog as the painting progresses. I’m going to use oil and went to get more liquin medium and distilled turps today. Gathering, gathering. You can see a before and after shot here!CANVAS 2large canvas on easel ready to paint
