Testing supports - Casein

Two new Casein paintings, each 5X7.

The second is on Gessobord, which I have used for previous paintings. I still struggle with soft edges for things like background trees and clouds.

The first is on Guerrilla Painter's Carton Plein Air Paper. The Carton Paper needs to be sealed to use with oils as it is so absorbent. Casein is a sealer (can be used instead of gesso) and likes absorbent surfaces. So, I used it directly on the paper. I like painting on it. It have a very different feel.

C&C Welcome. Gary

Re: Testing supports - Casein

Gary, I really like the look on the carton paper, of course they are both very nice indeed. I like doing studies in Casein on cardboard but the surfaces tends to warp on me so I have to tape them to a thicker more rigid surface until the study has cured.

Keep up the great work!

Re: Testing supports - Casein

Thanks Delo. Guerilla's paper does not warp when wet. They say that it is due to the resins in the paper. Gary
