I have some portraits coming up so I’m doing some tests.  I love how paint looks on a smooth surface, but I hate preparing the masonite.  I figured, maybe I could buy some ready made canvas and work wet into wet.  I bought some little canvases to try it out.  Above is a test I started.  I abandoned it pretty early on because the paint pools in the recesses.  Still, I’m going to try out some finer weave canvases before I go back to masonite and matte medium.
