Artist's Description

2012 Mixed Media oil, acrylic on canvas 24×18″

Here is a small piece and a quick lesson for my young peers…
…on canvas… paint a light coat of black jesso let dry a few days or force dry with hair dryer… then with wide putty knife, I applied a couple of heavy coats of jesso (white) and dry in between, coats, (so jesso won’t crack) unless you want that effect… the tip is to build up ridges with the putty knife….(so it looks like you applied expensive heavy gel)…that can be sanded later to get cracked effect without the cracks and also to add texture to the background…then paint background in acrylic mostly wild strokes… dry …light sanding… where you will apply oils (paints)
I sometimes sand lightly after oils have dried (not always) when you sand (with 200 grid) sand paper…you bring out some of the black jesso that creates shadows, and have a rich looking textured bacground that adds more value to your work so you can charge more… cool huh…It also has a slightly different effects on the oils… and the oil go on so smoothly good luck…
