In this video, I demonstrate how to apply a coloured ground to a pre-primed canvas using Golden fluid Acrylic.
To learn more about the benefits of painting on a coloured ground see: How a prepared canvas can drastically improve your paintings

When I’m doing (painting) landscapes or still life’s I usually always use Yellow Ochre as a coloured ground.
It has got a nice mid-tone to it, a really lovely warmth to it. It’s cheap and if you move onto Oil painting it dries quickly…
