Just playing with various techniques for the background of the apple pickers. This also another panel board. I tried to share the Roger Bansemer video on panel board as a substrate of oil and acrylic paintings. Still very confused. I have used archival canvas panel and gessoboard purchased from Blick Art supplies. In the end, after more research I will probably used raymar panels which I have used as well. In the meantime it is still bothering me, that so many professional artist use masonite, mdf and panel board. Yet I do respect the professional artist such as Jim Serrett who do not like using this type of surface.
