Re: Spring Fever

thanks all .. Gin .. I think I am using too little paint with the brush LOL .. Marc in Plein Air has suggested soupy paint so I will make my mix a little more soupy and apply more paint .. never thought I would be the one using too little paint.

Re: Spring Fever

Wayne,

Are you getting funky reflections from certain brush strokes? Some pigments look lighter in horizontal strokes and it can really screw up a painting. You can varnish after 6 months but I think if you can't have all your brushstrokes going the same way, Marc's suggestion of soupy paint is probably the best.

It happens to me when I use any of the umbers or flake white with little or no medium. The alternative is no medium at all but then you'd have to get rid of the earth tones and I'm not willing to do that.

This has a really nice feel of the transition between winter and spring.

Re: Spring Fever

thanks Dana .. yes, that is exactly it. Funny thing, I read that using Stand Oil would remove all brush stokes yet somehow I think it's related to the stand oil. I have made up another medium just using lindseed and turps and I will see how that one behaves sometime this week.

later,
