Teaching myself how to gesso a raw surface to prep it for painting.
This might lead to me learning how to stretched and prep my own canvases for future works. I want to start to work on larger canvas and stretching my own will allow me to create any size canvas and cut down on the cost.
Here are images of the repurposed 32-inch raw tabletop and an image with the first application of gesso, this needs to dry and sanded and then several more applications of gesso and then the surface will be ready to paint on.
A labor of love.
