Secessionville Painting, start-up!
I've no idea what the composition will be, but I've begun preparing a canvas for the battle painting!
Why make gesso for one, when you can squash 3 or 4 canvasses into a space?
Some of the paints I'll use. This is my 'new' sketching travel box, already in a state!
I mostly use traditional Sax oil paints. They're very expensive, natural pigment and hand made, but they are glorious!
The brushes are Black Hog hair - my favourite at the moment.
