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

Re: Testing supports - Casein

Very nicely done. What captured my focus in each of your paintings was your skill in handling 2subjects that I am currently struggling with: the foliage in the first painting and the clouds in your second painting. I'm going to be studying your paintings closely as great examples of what I am trying to achieve. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Testing supports - Casein

Those are beautiful. I am sure I've heard of casein before but just met someone today who paints in it. One question-about the soft edges-is that because of the paint? Does it compare more to oil than acrylic?

Re: Testing supports - Casein

I really like the vibrant color you get with the casein Gary. That first one just reaches out and grabs me. I especially like the touches of violet in the shadows. The paper looks like a nice base color to start with also.

Re: Testing supports - Casein

Thanks Doug.

Thanks Christine. Casein dries quickly like acrylics. It can be softened a bit but best to make soft edges when you lay them down. I am not capable of going back and blending; someone else may know how.

Thanks Rob. I have had trouble duplicating the feel of the first on the carton paper. A newby's luck.

Thanks again. Gary

Re: Testing supports - Casein

Nice paintings!
Has anyone here tried casein directly on wood boards?
I have a casein fixative, if the wood needs to be sealed, I thought I could use this to prepare the wood a bit first.

Re: Testing supports - Casein

Thanks Trond. I have not tried painting on wood board. The Carton Paper is pretty porous and the casein covered it well enough. I have some of the fixative and may try it on the paper and do a sketch. Gary
