London night scene.

 I have been trying out Gessobord for my oil painting. I normally use oil primed linen on panel, but thought I would give the gessbord a go. It's made in the USA by Ampersand and comes in various sizes and thickness. I just used 5x7 ins size 1/8 ins thick. I found it very good to work with, smooth and clean. A London night scene, " waiting for a bus". 5x7 ins, limited palette.
