Yeah! I managed to fit in painting my Burnt Sienna ground on my new canvas. I apply a very thin layer of Burnt Sienna diluted heavily with mineral spirits with a soft brush. Then I use a clean soft terry cloth to rub it all in and remove any excess. I’ll give it a couple days to dry completely. Then it will be ready for me to begin my first thick layer of my underpainting.
Here is a visual process of getting the canvas ready.
