Hi, Just trying something new again, isn't that what makes painting fun and interesting? I painted the canvas first with a layer of burnt sieanna mixed with gesso. After that dried I pre-mixed my colors and then laid them down trying not to cover up the color of the toned canvas. I'm sure different colors on the toned canvas would make your painting have a different feel. A fun experiment and I think I like it. It is oil on a 8 X 10 canvas panel.
