When ordering some more paper from the Art shop I use, I noticed that they are now stocking Ampersand Panels. I have always wanted to try the Ampersand Smooth panels so decided to order a few.
I love the surface of these panels - they are so smooth (much smoother than the gessobord panels) and the paint just glides on in a very similar way when using the Colourfix Smooth Paper.
I will definitely will purchase a few more.
Spring River 2 measures 12 x 12 inches and is painted on Ampersand Smooth Panel.
Many thanks to Galyna Lee for the reference photo.
