Today’s painting is a Bob Ross technique of wet-on-wet oil on slate. Although I started painting on slate through necessity I now find thatI prefer it. Canvas is a relatively smooth surface, the slate is a little more unpredictable.
I don’t spend hours sanding the slate. I am prepared for the uneven surface with its bumps and holes. I do spend time sanding the edges as they can be very sharp and I wouldn’t want anyone getting a nasty cut. Once this is done, the slate is washed off and away I go!
I like this slate the smooth oval contrasting with the shape of the slate. I hope you like it too.
I have just finished my latest piece of work, I have it drying and can’t wait to show it to you
Wishing you a great day 🙂
