|The Man Across The Aisle, In Progress|
He photographed a lot bluer than he is, but the values are balanced.
I had a lot of difficulties handling this little canvas. I painted it laying flat.
I need some way to paint it standing upright so I can go back to long
handled brushes and being able to back away. I need a mounting board for
these thin canvas boards; they slip and slid on the big easel ledge. Peg
board mounted to a frame to give it depth came to mind. hen, of course,
the question became how to secure the canvas to the peg board? Long screws and bolts on a stretch of framing material is as far as I got. If anyone has a better. easier idea,
I'd love to hear it. I'd like to do quite a few of these little gestural studies.
First painting effort in weeks! Applause please.
