Joker / Harley Quinn Painting: Gesso is Important

I found a set of cheap canvases at a distant Walmart. The canvas was course and had a difficult time taking on paint. I didn't think much of it until I realized how time-consuming the painting was becoming. I picked up some Gesso for the first time this week and gave it a shot.

Whats Gesso?
Gesso is a thin paint-like substance that everybody but me knew to use as a base coat on canvases.

It's a whole new process. The paint moves more and blends better.
Somehow, I remember painting like this last over a year ago.

Here's Joker...



The painting is inspired by this image found on the interwebs.
