Painting 059 - 6/28

Oil on gessoed illustration board
I really don't like to blame a surface for a painting's failure, so I'm not going to say 'I couldn't work on this surface' and pretend it absolves me of how awful this turned out. But it at least makes me feel like this is less of a total backslide! Because, see: the drawing's not bad, just the painting.

I need to switch brands of gesso, because this brand dries with a surface like plastic, and I can't afford the gessoboard I'm buying. Bah.

(no 'progress' tag or comparison, since it's patently not worth it.)
