Received some canvas's form someone getting rid of all of theirs. A lot has started paintings on them and I discovered it was easier to paint them with black gesso (1 maybe 2 coats) then multiple coats of white. Now I love painting on black. Here are some of my finished pieces:

It takes several coats of paint (starting with white) to really bring the color out, but they really do stand out against the black!:clap:

Wow. Realy nice. I saw in Michaels tonight that they had black gessoed canvases and wondered about them. Now I know what great results they can potentially produce.
