Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

It's a wonderful painting - such vibrant color and terrific composition. The lively brushwork adds a lot. I personally would be afraid to risk such a lovely piece with unproven approaches, but then I guess someone has to be the one who proves them, eh? Best wishes!

Thank you! My painting was born in a battle with oil and acrylic painting materials. Color and brush strokes are full of such combat traces...
BTW, paint layers nature looks solid and paint bonded well. I want to varnish it after drying. I have spirit based acrylic and Dammar varnishes. Or I need to oil it out before varnishing?

It is up to you Alex, but Gamvar is good for both acrylic and oil paintings.

Dammar gives high gloss. I also have acrylic varnish, water glossy. Gamvar is hard to get here. Daler-Rowney synthetic varnish is available. I guess, it contains Ketone resin.

Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

Why not use a mixture of oil varnish with acrylic varnish? Maybe add a bit of Shoe polish to make sure it's removable?

"Shoe polish" is more or less a traditional medium. You can replace Cold Wax with it. Odd Nerdrum used something close, But after that, he switched his artistic fortune to Alkyds.

Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

Was the experiment for experiment's sake? Do you feel that the chemistry behind such an experiment is sound?


Also, is it your belief that fumed silica mixed with linseed is bad?

Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

It looks quite acrylic. Im wondering if the acrylic you used overpowers the oil in the finished product. Is the experiment to see if it can be done rather than the esoteric appeal?

I can't see the difference between acrylic or oil on this painting. After drying and oiling out, the painting surface looks quite unified. Acrylic areas can be detected
as a little more sticky places for fingernail pressure. Dried oil isn't sticky. I do not recommend to add oil to acrylic, but 20% acrylic paint into 80% Oil paint is just fine (for me! )

Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

For the varnish have you considered egg yolk, russian vodka, bees wax and petroleum jelly?

Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

That is very nice! Required great brush control, to avoid creating brown smudges, as alla prima.

Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

And I thought you were known as a ‘purist!’ I think ‘revolutionary’ is more like it. But it’s a great painting.

Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

I will try to wait a year to apply final varnish, acrylic mineral spirit varnish might be good for that. Varnish is necessary because uncovered acrylic paint (or acrylic-oil paint) attracts dust much more than regular oil paint surface. Green and ochre colors on this painting is acrylic, while red, violet and yellow are oil.
Blue color is oil Phthalo mixed into acrylic white. Large area of green glazed with Volkonskoite green earth.
I do not like egg yolk, as it is water sensitive and brittle over time. Acrylic can perform better for me.

I think, that some of purists and traditionalists ideas can be introduced into total revolutionary painting process.

Re: "Paint impression." Oil-acrylic on canvas.

This picture of my painting I took today. You can see old fashioned Chromium Oxide paint tube , that I painted several months ago and some other minor corrections.
