Hello. Loving the new painting portrait coarse. I have a question about something you said in the video, it is when you start to put paint down for the background and you said you use a light color so it won’t sink into the board and you won’t have to use varnish. Could you explain this a little more?
I painted this figure on an old board that already had a painting on it so the background is abstract. Background seems to be something I never feel good about when my paintings are done. I may just do something simple and paint over what is there now.
Any suggestions on the figure would be nice, I haven’t done the hands and feet yet which will be a challenge.
