Getting Ready

Time to begin a new group of paintings.  I am starting with a pack of 9" x 12" canvas panels.  Just a bit larger, but I am thinking of these as possible plans for larger work.  First I cover the white canvas with a warm beige beginning.  I cover all the panels at once using a quick drying white as the base.  It is a sunny day so I put them all on the roof outside my 3rd floor studio window to dry.  I don't want the aroma in my space.
When I climb the stairs to this sanctuary I close the door and leave the phone and the computer behind.  Just me and my mess and whatever order I can make on the canvas.
