I am still looking for the perfect ground for my painting. I tried just about everything I can think about. What I like to paint on is something very smooth and solid. The canvas has too much texture. The illustration and gessoed board are very good but not quite sturdy. For this painting I used the wood panel. I applied the gesso on the row wood surface. I do not think that I applied enough gesso on to its surface for my preference. Of course I layered four times and sanded in between layers. I guess that my quest for the ideal surface quality for my painting will be continued.
