In my stash of canvases I found three 16"x20"x1" that I had primed with venetian red gesso. There are times when I like to work on more than one canvas at a time and do a series of similar subject matter. I can use the same colors on each one as I proceed through my layering and glazing process and it is fun to watch three paintings evolve at the same time. On these three I have started with a simple composition of shapes and line. I have blocked in the shapes with opaque color that I will glaze over with many transparent layers as the paintings progress.
I will post photos of the completed paintings when I finish them. It will be interesting to compare these preliminary images with the finished product. In my canvas stash I also found six 11"x14"x1" primed with black gesso and I will be doing a series of tractors as soon as the drawings are complete.
