I haven’t painted on it yet, but am excited to
I absolutely love the primed texture of the oil ground panels, and the unique and intricate shape of this year's pet portrait panel made for a fun challenge to figure out a strong composition. I went ahead and ordered several different shaped panels because I really enjoy this compositional challenge, and they make for such interesting art pieces. Trekell is my new favorite place to find painting panels.
I love the quality and shape of the wood panel. I will definitely be purchasing more!!!
I was apprehensive about using this shape panel at first. It was interesting trying to figure out the positioning of my pets and trying to visualize the final painting. After drawing it in, the image became clear and I started enjoying the process. It was also my first experience of painting with the oil ground. I really liked it! Fun thing to do!
I got it. I put it on a shelf. I hope to go through my pictures sometime soon to find the picture of my dog that I really like and see if I can paint it. As for now it is simply a board. An oddly shaped and very small board.
