Tonight I tried painting on an oil ground again. Previously I didn’t like it, I think because I was painting too thinly. Tonight a double coated oil ground on the canvas board was dry enough to paint on and I figured out that it truly is the best surface to paint on. Now I just have to put a process in place where I put oil ground on a canvas every night, so I can build up a stock pile of oil ground canvases. It would be much easier if it dried over night, but this stuff can take up to a week to dry.
