Turpentine diaries 7/23/17

Break is finally done. I struggled with the surface from the beginning which resulted in more sessions than usual.  I won’t bore you with the details; the surface isn’t awful–it’s perfectly sound–but it’s not to my liking.  Not nearly smooth enough and like any rough-surfaced canvas, it eats brushes.  I like surfaces that are smooth and semi-absorbent, which turns out to be tricky to produce.  It’s easy to make a surface that’s too rough or too smooth.  Like Goldilocks, I want a surface that’s just right. 🙂


Break is part of the Playhouse Square series.  I am building a page for the Playhouse Square series as well as the Main Street series.
