Hey :) was just wondering what you prime your canvases with before you piant, wether you use gesso or some other type of base before you use the oil paints as ive just started ussing some oil paints myself and was wondering what you would recommend :) great work by the way and thank you for the watch :)

I buy rolls of primed canvas, stretch it and give it another coat of regular gesso. Then sand lightly. When I paint on Masonite for smaller paintings, I give it a dozen thin coats of gesso.  I thin my oils with linseed oil until it feels like soft butter. I then apply paint like a paint by number, then flare out the bristles of gold or white sable Synthetic brushes, and using only the tips, softly blend the shades or colours together.
