My Process…

So today I took the long arduous task of sanding my canvas. Typically my process involves buying a canvas. I then will add at least ten layers of black gesso. Afterwards, I sit outside near our pool under our little gazebo and begin the long 2-3 hours of sanding. I usually end up looking like this…

Although part of the reason I end up all black is due to the gesso flying around, it becomes even harder to take off since I put on insect repellent and that makes me sticky so the black gesso sticks to me. After I finish gessoing I eventually will draw my lovely creation with white charcoal pencil. And then paint it with Acylics. I’ll see if I can place up more works in process.
