Began another miniature, 5″ x 7″ canvas, of a red rosebud. Even though these are a new batch of canvases the same paint adhesion problem exists. To solve this I coated the entire surface with acrylic gel, it is transparent and allows the drawing to be seen. After the gel coat the acrylic paint worked just fine. Don’t know what the hex is on 5″ x 7″ canvas, none of the other sizes has this problem. The background consist of variegated dots lighter at the top darkening in value toward the bottom.
