Blue Sail

This was done on 6 x 6 black gessoed masonite.  I went to Home Depot and got some 4'x4' masonite sheets.  My terrific neighbor cut them into different sizes for me.  I have a lot of sanding edges and gessoing to do.  I did enjoy working on this black panel.  I might even try some different colors.  Mike Rooney said in a blog that it is safe to use acrylic as an underpainting for oil.

  1. It is definitely ok to use acrylic as an underpainting for oil. The great thing is that you can experiment with all kinds of colors, in addition to black -- and build up texture too. Your blog looks great!
