Prime Coating

Spent all day for applying prime coat on new canvases.
I use Matsuda's CANSOL for that purpose;
Although gesso is waterbased and tend to lose its volume when the water in it evaporates, I heard that CANSOL is oilbased made from titanium oxide dissolved with linceed oil and petrol.
Just right for oil painting!

Only problem for it is of the smell.. Very painty.

I should not have done this job at this time of the year;
It is hey fever season! I cannot open the studio window and the room is filled with the smell of all paints!

よく考えれば、 この作業をするべき時期ではなかった。。
