underpaintings

Two new under-paintings I have been working on this week. I have been testing out using homemade wheat paste glue with just a touch of PVA in it. It has enabled me to sand down the layers of my painting with ease (the straight PVA was gumming up). I have resorted to applying some of the layers with my hands,
and the feeling of it is reminiscent of grade school paper mache projects.

The process of gluing and sanding away is satisfying. 
and I love the smooth and slightly toothy feel of the surface.

ooh I love the layered and aged look of that!
