The Work Before the Art...



Alex of The Strange Art of Ledante is helping me to prep some canvases here.  I bought some hard boards to paint on and I've discovered that I like the smoothness of them.  Canvas can be great, but sometimes I end up fighting with it...  Alex suggested some gesso and sanding, so he's helped me to prepare some canvases to try this way.  Alex used to do traditional art, but is now strictly digital, except when he helps me...

I started using gesso around 2 years ago and I love it! But, I have never sanded the canvases afterwards? It is a lot of prep time, but I think it's worth it ;o)
Big Hugs ;o)

That's wonderful Lisa Isabella, I can't imagine anything that would look better than what you do...but who knows...good for you, it must be exciting to try something new, I'm so happy for you. Have a great weekend and Alex too :)

Thanks Christine, Stacy, and Lorraine! Digital is definitely less messy Christine. Stacy and Lorraine, I'm not sure if I'll like it, but I'm going to give it a try... I hope you have a great weekend too!
