    This is less than $20 Aust. The bag is a zip closure freezer bag, insulated to keep things cool. Very light weight.

  • Re: FINALIST!!

    Folks

    The good news is that the winning entry is the choice of one judge from my home town, who I happen to know is a solid tradionalist when it comes to Australian landscape painting. The other factor in Rob's favour is the specified Theme of depicting light in the Australian landscape.

    BTW THIS COMPETITION IS OPEN TO ANY ARTIST. SO MAKE A START ON NEXT YEAR'S ENTRY.

  • Re: Mixing gessos for ground color

    Justin

    If you are starting from raw canvas you will need a good primer too. Often purchased canvas is sized and primed with gesso. Check your label and mfrs website.

    Yes, suggest multiple coats of lightly sanded acrylic gesso with the last coat mixed/toned with acrylic burnt umber. Alternately, multiple coats of lightly sanded acrylic gesso and a final of acrylic iron oxide or raw sienna.
