Recently I had the opportunity to paint on one of Jeanne’s backgrounds. If you have not already done this I encourage you to do one. I loved working on it. You need to have several available so anytime you are ready to paint you don’t have to wait to do a background. What fun I had working with the colors and the lines that are already there. I did however spray the background with Krylon Matte Finish No. 1311 before I started to be sure all is sealed and the paints won’t absorb into the background too fast. It worked beautifully. Making your colors work with the background is exciting. It also brings a beauty of harmony into the overall painting. You are going to love it as well as grow in relating to colors that are already there to blend with you painting. It will also strengthen your knowledge of work with and balancing the temperatures in your painting. Have fun. Start one today.
