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 pink...it 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.
