Parsley Flower & Experiment

7" x 5"
Oil on panel

I didn't even know that parsley had flowers, but it makes sense it does and they are like little bundles of lace. Very pretty and tiny.

Here is my on-going experiment. I took some satin and stretched it, then gessoed it with the clear gesso, but it didn't take well. It just wrinkled and dried milky.

It did take well to the gloss medium test piece shown, although it lost it's sheen with both. I think I will use the gloss on this type of synthetic material and stay with the gesso for cotton surfaces.
