Spent the entire day today painting the still life on my easel. I have a few more thing to do on it tomorrow and then I’ll post it. I’m delighted with how it’s turning out. I took a pick halfway and will post that too. I took a break and went to a local hardware store and had a sheet of 1/4″ MDF cut into twenty pieces. Tomorrow I’ll seal them and then prime them with an alkyd primer. It’s so smooth and luxurious to paint on. My next painting will include roses. Can’t wait!!!
