I have a question on wood ?

Is there someone that works on wood and
can PLEASES give me some tips on how to work whit it .
I want the grain of the wood to come out
clear in some parts of the paintings/drawings.
On this two I used glazes pen and ink and
watercolors they are 2' by 3' 1/2.

A wire brush is good to bring out the grain Rafael. Work with the grain NOT against it.

Lovely so far Rafael!

If using acrylics water the paint down like a watercolor glaze to let the wood grain show through. But you probably already know this tip.

I didn't know there was such a thing as clear gesso, now you gave mE a tip! '-)

Can't wait to see your paintings once you capture the effext you're envisioning. These are gorgeous just the way they are :)
