I love gesso

The unseasonably summer like weather and olympics has meant I've had a few days break from the easel.I've also been messing with my Blog design, its still not right but hey....small steps. Anyway today is gesso day. Basically I cover a lot of what I've done in gesso and wait for it to dry (this can be speeded up with a hairdryer) Then once dry I begin to scratch and sand down the layers...this does take time but it creates a wonderfully textured surface, and it also makes it possible to watch the final few olympic events while waiting for the layers to dry. :)
