Preparation for Painting
For the last month I have been thinking about an idea for painting. I had remembered a transparency I had taken in the late 70's and scanned into my computer late last year.
Here a graphite and Graphite/Watercolor pencil sketch I did Thursday afternoon.
Today I bought a 1/2 inch birch plywood panel and had cut into 3 pieces, one fitting a frame I already had. I then sanded and applied the first coat of gesso. A couple more and I will be ready to paint on it. I am still working on an idea on how I want this to go.
