Beautiful roses Isabel – love the deep richness of the color.
Very rich reds, not so easy to do. How do you like working on wood panel as opposed to canvas?
I’ve only used wood panels a few times and every time I’ve used them I end up painting either a tree or flowers, no I idea why. I have a tendency to paint nature on them. When I paint on panel I am always pleased with the results. In my opinion, the paint goes on smoother, blends nicer and I am able to layer with much ease. I also feel that using a Mongoose brush works better, especially when adding detail, less streaks.
I just went to home depot the other day and brought a nice size of cabinet plywood, the really nice one to cut to size and gesso to force me to use it more often. We’ll see if that works.
