oil on masonite 24cm x 27cm.
This is a view of Fennell's bay from the beach at Myrtleville. This
is my second time working with masonite, this time after prepping it
I used the smooth side. To prepare the masonite I first coated it with two generous coats of
gesso, when they were dry I gave it an acrylic undercoat and when that dried I coated it with a
cold pressed linseed oil. The smooth surface was really nice to work with, but if you are trying
this, personally, I would recommend soft brushes as the pig bristles leave too many scratch
marks for comfort.
