I used a panel that I had made with Windriver canvas. I love how that canvas looks with a finished painting but I have a lot of trouble getting the brush to move across it. Maybe more paint or a different medium would help.
I think I did pretty well today.

I used a painted over Raymar canvas which I really liked. Also my old medium: stand oil, refined linseed oil and thinner. Liked that too. The Rosemary Ivory brushes are pretty good for accuracy but they seem kind of wimpy compared to bristle brushes for moving paint around. So I used bristle for the background.

Tomorrow I don't plan to have a time limit.

So I'll try this for a while. I got inspired to do this when I took Julie Davis' workshop and she said that when she started painting she would set her alarm forty-five minutes early and paint before getting the kids ready for school. Well, an old retired lady should be able to manage an hour a day. I guess it's really 2 with the clean up and posting.
I didn't like the gesso board I've used the last couple days. Will try something else tomorrow.

Julie Davis recently. I really love her work and came home with lots of things to think about and work on. This old outbuilding was one of many at the ranch where we were painting.
