Falling off iii


I had a productive if scattered morning broken up by meetings and preparation. I prepared two canvases  by stretching them onto a piece of 3/4″ plywood with a layer of plastic between the canvas and the wood so the painting doesn’t end up being completely stuck to a great big lump of wood. I stretched it as usual, pulling centre edge against centre edge, then painted four or five layers of gesso onto it. The meetings took place between coats, so it worked out pretty well in the end.
