Doug, I didn't realize on such a small surface I would need to do that. That's what I did wrong. Well Im going to process my paintings with their flaws and hope for the best that they will understand and let me return prepared for next year. I didn't have enough time to get ready for this...
I am entering a Juried show with my first miniature canvas and I am told the smaller the canvas the more you see the grain. How much is this ever a deterrent to judges if they notice your gesso allows grain to still be seen. ~Beverly~
