Golden Opens on Artboard

I have been looking for an easy to use and inexpensive support to use for plein air with my Golden Open Acrylics.

Based on a suggestion in the Acrylic Forum, I tried "Multimedia Artboard". The first layer of paint went on with difficulty but then the support took the paint well. It was easy enough to add layers and texture. I am pretty happy with the Artboard. Below is my first effort on it. C&C welcome. Gary

I used this for cold wax painting and really liked it - waiting for my art supplier to get more stocks in,

Re: Golden Opens on Artboard

Thanks vhere. I have tried the Artboard as it comes and with an acrylic matte medium. It is easier to get the paint to flow on matte medium but I lose the sense of texture. The Artboard also seems to work well for oils. Gary

Thanks Michael. I almost got the idea of painting cars into a scene from you and your Vokswagens. Gary

Re: Golden Opens on Artboard

Thanks NTL. So you're the one who pull up and parked in my view as I was starting to paint? Gary

Re: Golden Opens on Artboard

No, not mine! The centers of my hubcaps are black. Mine has a small silver triangular shaped spot on the driver front hubcap, probably a stone ding. But it is a white 1995 Astrovan, "Vinnie Van Go"!
