My first try with black gesso so I took no risk and painted this on a square 10"x10" canvas board. I made quite some errors in the beginning so that influenced the end result. I should have put much more light and open sky in it. The trees were hard to do since I hardly saw what I was putting on the canvas. The path was almost a mud path, still have to learn better to mix properly.
Easiest part were the grass and the leaves. I was almost dissapointed that it needed so few in this painting!
Anyway, I know the good effect now of black gesso and yes, this time I was more careful with applying the right amount of liquid clear so that painted really very smoothly!
