"Stage Fright" 6"x6" oil on canvas

This red and white patterned surface is actually woven handmade paper.   I love the pattern against the plain colors.  The panels I use are gessoboard panels by Ampersand.   I used the smooth surface for a number of months, but now I glue fine tooth cotton canvas to the surface.  Lately before I paint I put on a layer of Grey #6 acrylic as an underpainting.  I think it helps the oil paint flow on more smoothly.   Who knows I might change it next week, but for now that is what my process is.
