"Stand Tall, Study"
9x12 Oil on Linen/Board
As I started the demo in class this morning, my brush swept across the support & well, I thought that was different. I'm so used to knowing how my brush & paint will react on my support that I was shocked when the brushstroke didn't look or feel the same. Awhile back I ordered a couple of sample boards with not my regular canvas attached. This one had the Belgian Linen (lovely) but single primed. I love painting on linen but this one just didn't hold my brushwork like my other support. I like this painting but it has a very different feel about it. Live & learn. Stepping out of your comfort zone is good, I just now know that single primed Belgian Linen probably won't live in my toolbox. It's so important to be as knowledgeable about your "tools" as your skills.
