continuing work on the ahrens’ triptych: each canvas got two coats of gesso — one to prime the raw canvas, and one to add texture (lisa calls it “frosting”). then i block the background in with acrylics, quickly and with a fat brush.

  • first coat of gesso on 3rd canvas
  • gessoing the canvas
  • hanging the paintings in the studio
  • 2nd coat of gesso
  • final gesso detail: lisa calls it "frosting"
  • 3rd canvas, 1st background
  • detail of 3rd canvas background
