Acrylic on scrap woodI did this quick little painting on a scrap piece of plywood I found lying around. We are always building, repairing, or replacing something at my house. It seems a shame to just toss all of it, so I try to utilize the scrap lumber in some manner. I, of course, first clean the wood, then I lay on several layers of gesso before toning. This is not even a neatly cut or square piece of wood. I think that frees me up to do my painting quicker and looser since I am not using an expensive canvas. This was a fun exercise.
