In my post about “Oil Painting Surfaces,” I briefly talked about panels/boards that can be used for oil painting. Some people also call them gesso panels or gesso boards. In today’s video, I show you how I make these oil painting panels/boards myself. I also talk about the following advantages of making and using such boards.
1. Control on texture
3. Custom sizes
4. Easy to dry
5. Easy to ship
I and my daughter went out to paint ‘en plein air’ last Sunday.
It was a great experience and I painted two watercolor paintings in a span of 1.5 hours.
In this video, I share with you my process of painting one of those paintings and then talk about learnings or takeaways from this experience.
I hope this video will inspire you to paint on location or ‘en plein air’ more often!
