Ideas for Painting on If you don't have a canvas

If you don't have a canvas to paint on there are lots of other surfaces you can use. All you need is some house hold primer the type you whitewash your interior wall with and you are away. Any acrylic primer will do the trick and it doesn't have to be white. You can also use wall paper paste. Paint any of these on either thick paper, card, cardboard, hardboard, wood or even cotton or linen stapled to a board. I would recommend a couple of coats before you put down the yellow ground recommended in my video .
