Back to Steeplechase!
A Daunting Challenge Not Easily Won / 14x18 / oil on masonite
Back to a favorite subject once again. I had a few masonite panels left over from a while ago. I had abandoned them as I did not enjoy painting on their very smooth and slick surface. I love how the texture of linen or canvas grabs the paint as the brush is dragged across the surface. So I put several layers of gesso on the masonite panels and find I like them much more now!
