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. That certainly did the trick and I’m really pleased with it, all the imperfections are gone. So 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!
