I paint on commercial canvas boards, or on MDF or masonite primed with two coats of acrylic gesso. I prefer the MDF as it provides a solid base.
I lay paint on, working from the sky and horizon to the foreground, blending by painting wet on wet. I constantly go back over the evolving work as it dries to build the effect and colour I’m trying to achieve.
I like to complete a painting in one sitting because acrylics dry quickly; I usually spend the most part of a day, adding final touches when the painting has partly dried and become ‘tacky’, but there have been occasions where I will spend an extra day, going back over a painting.
I don’t wash my brushes often, instead wiping excess paint onto areas of the canvas that I have yet to cover. This allows old colours to be intermingled with new as I work my way down the picture, helping with colour coordination and to harmonize the picture.
