Today I went back to my gessoed, sanded hardboard panels. I have started to use the gesso much thinner so the panels remain very smooth and I lightly sand them in between coats. I enjoyed working in a much freer way with this painting and it was a relief to be able to make a mark and have it stay that way! I felt with the linen it was almost beginning to dictate the way I should work. I'm not saying I won't use it again but I have learned about its strengths and limitations for me.
This painting, "Signal", (I think that is a telegraph pole)is actually based on the same scene as the one below only a little further up the road and closer to the pole.
