I hate painting on dry canvas, so I thought I'd give the gessoed hard board a chance again. This was a brand new Richeson board (yes, I bought it from you, Brian!). While I like painting on a very smooth a slick surface without any medium, I can't for the life of me get the paint to hide brush strokes like I can with canvas. I'm not sure if it will show on this in-progress painting, but every brush stroke shows.
I'm using good paint. Well decent paint, Bob Ross and Richeson. I'm using good brushes. And allegedly good hard board.
