Re: Paint the Wind

Gosh - mahlos everyone. I ordered some boards that were really cheap as an introduction from the manufacturer - Richeson - very hard surface boards that I finally figured out after four or so paintings. The surface absorbs solvent (Gamsol) but doesn't absorb oil (walnut w/ alkyd). So rather then stroking the color on, I throw it on with a big friggin' brush and move it around with a big flat sable, blending as I go. After about an hour or so the surface becomes tacky (the alkyd) and literally grabs the paint off the brush (that's the time to put in the hard edges) - too much fun and I guess that shows.

Thanks for your comments - last Friday's turned out really well and I'll post that when I get the time. Mahlos again - richard

Loose and expressive. Good going, Richard!

I've used the Richeson boards a couple of times. I like the ones with the gray tone added. They do lend themselves to big and bold brushstrokes.
