remember the wood panels?

Remember the wood panels I was preparing? That was June 18th (click here to see the post). Well, I wasn't happy with the texture of the gessoed wood so I glued (YES, archival glue) fine canvas onto each panel, rolled it with my rolling pin, and when they were dry, I cut off the excess canvas.  
I have very little experience painting on canvas but I do remember not liking the 'spring' of canvas stretched on a frame. Today I began an underpainting with Holbein Indigo (my new favorite color) on my new little canvas-on-wood panel and so far, so good.
I'll keep you posted on the progression of the painting on canvas while I also work on a larger piece.
