This is an oil sketch I painted on masonite, which is an untempered hardboard. I had never used this kind of surface to paint on, though i had often heard it is great for getting a lot of detail. Unfortunately, I didn't apply enough gesso to the board during preparation and I had to deal with my paints soaking in. After I built up a couple layers and allowed time to dry in between, it was responding more like my canvases.
