This piece is coming along. It will probably be finished tomorrow. That forest took a lot out of me! I had some issues when I started painting the statue because the surface of a skateboard is so slick, but I had some Clear Gesso lying around, and I finally found a use for it! I've had it for about 8 years, and I didn't like it because it's VERY toothy, it feels like sand paper when it dries. I had problems using it before, but it actually worked well this time. It's surprisingly absorbent, which was great, and I didn't have a problem making a hard line as long as I thinned the paint a little. Time to go to the gym!
