Dead To The World,, oil sketch on gessoboard, 6" x 8"
Gessoboard is new to me. My order was influenced by some of you. After a couple of hours attempting to get this self portrait drawn in with a likeness, I have mixed feeling about the stuff: I like the sketchiness of it and being able to erase almost too easily; the slipperiness is weird however and I wonder how secure is the paint with no tooth? I did prime it and this is a sketch, so I'm not all that concerned. Whether I'll buy it again is a wait and see.
