Crackle Pear ll

I didn't do a progression on this 11 x 14 one but I wish that I had because this one almost became a gesso "paint-over." I just kept fiddling and fiddling and it finally came around.  I am working on these panels.
I find that it's just too bouncy on a regular canvas and I can't scrape and sand and abuse it as much as these wooden panels. They are very affordable and I love to use them. The background is collaged scrapbook paper and then the "you get what you get" technique. Yes, I have gone pear crazy.

Love the crackle love all the texture. I agree the canvas is to bouncy frustrates me, I love using wood panels blocks and recently found wood boxes at Michaels :O)

When you scratch and rub off your backgrounds to reveal your under-painting and collage elements, how do you do it? I've used baby wipes as suggested by Traci Bunkers but I'm wondering what other techniques you've had success with?

I really love this one Martha. Some of my favorite colors...the texture at the bottom really got my attention.
