Phew, completed my zendala #7 in time for art show #4 at the new gallery at The Hub in Yaragon. Requirements were to have nothing larger than 10x10. I used a warm colour scheme using Sakura gelly roll markers on canvas. The shading was completed by using water on the markers.
Regarding work on canvas, this time I used 4 coats of gesso. I discovered that it was easier to rub out any pencil marks, but the ridges from the brush work made the surface uneven instead of the canvas weave. I did sand the surface back, but obviously not enough. Fortunately only experts would notice the difference!
