Gesso.

I can’t believe that I haven’t used it before now. It makes painting so much better and is definitely worth the extra time.

I did a layer or two of just gesso, and then I mixed it with black to make a light grey so there’d be less glare under the lights. Also, I used one of our fluorescent lights to paint by and that was also really helpful and made it even easier to gauge the color strengths. 😀

  1. whoa….you’d never used it before? seriously? it makes such a HUGE difference! 😀 I’m so glad you found it.

    have you tried any of those cool “natural light” lamps? they do a good job of keeping colors true under the light.
