I'm working on a series of small paintings on 5 x 5 inch panels. These aren't canvas panels, they're 3/8-inch thick wood panels from Blick, which they coat with a canvas-like layer of I'm not sure what. Even after the two coats of gesso that I applied, there's still a pebbly texture on the panel.
Anyhow, I applied paint here with a palette knife and then stamped the circles with acrylic paint. I have 10 of these small panels, and it appears that I have begun my journey back to painting with these.
