First step

I am starting with a small 10 x 12 inch Daler board which I cover with whatever paint I have left on my palette board. As you know this will be a dark, muddy black brown and I apply this thickly but evenly with a soft brush as smooth as possible to facilitate even dots when the time comes. Mix in a drying agent or it could take days to dry. The reason I am using a small ground is because if I stuff it up I haven’t wasted too much time or paint.
