          Texture with Acrylics


I recently decided to add plaster to the canvas surface
to give an interesting look for paintings that called for
texture.  This worked well for this scene from Italy
with the rough texture of both the building and the
roadway.

I applied the plaster and let it cure on the canvas board
surface.  The board prevents flexing as on a stretched
canvas.  After it cured, I added gel medium, letting it dry
and then proceeded with my painting.

I plan to display the work at 2nd Helpings Gallery in
Roanoke
