Painting 079 - 7/18

Oil on gessoed illustration board
So I ran out of gessoboards and didn't realize this until 8pm and I was preparing to sit down and paint. I was in despair over having to use the dreaded gesso; I got around it by using only one, fairly watered-down coat. And it worked! The oil will probably eat through it in a couple of years, but that assumes I care about the longevity of this painting.

Once again, I have proved that I can paint metal with a certain amount of ease, but completely collapse when I attempt anything red. Sigh. At least this breaks my run of Completely Humiliating Paintings.
