Painting panels

After painting on hardboard for the last few months I am now trying out the wood painting panels in dims of 12 x 12". I purchased them at Curry's in Missisauga and love going to that store as they allow my little pug to roam freely in the aisles and feed him treats. And the sales people are very very nice and extremely helpful.

Before I start painting I usually put 3 coats of gesso, and sand each coat in between. The new panels feel very sturdy and the 2" depth allows me to paint the edges in a contrasting color.
