It's been a minute since I posted on here. I almost forgot what to do. ;-)
One of the local art stores had a sale on gessoboard panels, and since I've never painted on this surface I thought I'd give it a shot. I have to say that I'm really glad I made the choice to paint on gessoboard. The size is smaller than what I'm used to (6"x6") so I usually paint one subject. Painting on gessoboard makes it a little easier for me to paint wet into wet without mixing the top layer with the underlying layer too much. It gives the painting a more textured look. At least that's the way it seems to me. I saw some cream puffs in the grocery store and thought I'd try my hand at it. I love the challenge of rendering textures faithfully. This is my first try and I liked it, so I'll probably paint a few more.
