Painting on Wood
I am new to attempting large works on any surface. . . mostly I've done oil pastels on gessoed masonite or colorfix and watercolors on paper and a few acrylics on canvas. But none larger than 11 x 14
I have a large piece of wood sized perfectly to fit over my bed which I want to paint and hang there above it. BUT I have no experience in painting on wood.
So I am wondering if I should use gesso as a basecoat on the wood or some other form of primer? The paints I plan to use are acrylics.
Thank you very much in advanced for any thoughts or advice.
