The next step in painting a decorative corner table with a seascape is to start painting with acrylic paint. But before I started painting I needed to prepare my table top surface for the painting. I sanded the area where the painting is going and then I applied a coat of gesso. This will make it easier to paint on the white crackled finish that is on the table.

Then I started laying in my colors with a thin coat of acrylic paint. I usually paint with Golden Acrylics or Liquitex brands of acrylics. I will continue building on this initial layer of paint so check back to see how it is progressing.
