Learned the hard way about cheap canvas board, soaked up the liquid white halfway through. Limited palette.



Same thing happened to me the other day! Nice save!

Very pretty

nice job JW

You managed to do a beautiful compo regardless of the liquid white hiccup. Well done J!

Is is a canvas on a cardboard or a pre stretched one? For oil, a pre stretched is preferred. The cardboard one will soak your liquid white wetness. Bob mentions it in a couple of his episodes. If you really want to use the cardboard canvas, make sure you prime it with 2 layers of gesso. It will help a ton to keep the liquid white wet. 😊
