129 Paint strokes

Here is a video showing how I apply paint onto a large abstract painting. As you can see I use a lot of paint and load generous amounts of paint onto my brush before each stroke.


  1. Hi Brad:

    I think I'm with you on the black gesso. I think if it were blue or purple, it might spark some interesting variegations from leaving the ground showing.

    I sometimes tone my panel with cobalt or ultramarine blue with a touch of black, or sometimes transparent red oxide. But I've also done hot puts some fire and energy right off the bat!


    The different directions of the texture work pretty well with this one. And I think the painting popped when you added the indigo/cobalt strokes.

    You sure do paint like a millionaire as they say! :)

    1. I will probably revert to my usual red iron oxide underpainting. I've tried a blank canvas and that doesn't work well either.

      Since using RGH paints I can actually afford to paint like a millionaire! Thanks for the feedback.


Thanks for your comments!
