I have been experimenting with various substrates, trying to find a canvas that I can paint on using watercolors and totally avoid the framing. So I came across this little gem the other day and ordered a few. What I learned with this piece is that I need to wet the canvas before painting. There seems to be a gesso on it, a gesso that was formulated for water based paints - it still needed to be wet before applying pigment. It was a lot of fun to do and I will continue working on it tomorrow, and hopefully it will be even better - so I can send it out for Thursdays Newsletter.

Happy Painting,
