How to prime your canvas
Mix your gesso with the most present colour in the artwork, this saves time and colour.
Start with the edges and sides of your canvas and make sure to use a wide flat brush matching the colour category you are working in.
Fill you canvas with your base coat.
Finish with horizontal brush strokes and let dry according to the drying time of the colour in use.
You are ready to paint freestyle or to apply your grid and outlines.
