I was preparing a couple of canvases with gesso today when I remembered seeing the artist Cesar Santos painting gesso on his sketch book so he could paint with oils or acrylics without the paper curling so I thought I would try it out. It works a treat on my 170gsm Windsor and Newton sketch book so I did this self portrait. A tricorn hat and cloak is de rigeur in Dorset this year!
