Original Acrylic Landscape painting

"Summer Trees"
Original Acrylic Landscape painting
on Cradled Masonite
18x18 1 1/2 inches
In my Etsy Store
This is my new obsession painting on Wood, it is extremely time consuming but I really enjoy painting on the flat dry surface. I have to cut the wood,then make into a frame. Cut masonite and nail it to the frame,fill the nail holes,then sand. I then have to apply 4 coats of Gesso and sand in between each coat. By this time I probably could have painted 3 paintings.
It is much drier than canvas and because the surface is flat the paint flattens out when you apply it. So you are seeing a lot more brush strokes which is what I like about it.
