"Banana and Strawberry with Box"
This is painted in oil on a 5"x7" Ampersand Hardbord. I recently bought a package of hardbord to try, instead of using the gessobord. It's the same kind of panel, but the gessobord already has gesso on it, and the hardbord does not. I like putting my own gesso on, I did 2 seperate coats, one brushed up and one brushed across, criss crossing each other. It made a nice soft pattern, almost like the threads of cloth.
