Sweet and Sour

This is a gesso panel that I so disliked, so I coated it with Liquitex 
gloss medium before painting on it. The paint glided on which I loved 
but I also realized that I should use more paint. Up until then, had this 
mantra I'd learned in college about fat over lean. To me that meant 
thinned-with-turp paint in the first-go, less turp next, but it didn't occur 
to me that "thin" paint could be straight out of the tube. I've wasted a lot 
of panels using oils like watercolor.
