I`ve moved to the other side of my studio and I`m using watermedia. The extraordinary painter, David Page Coffin
, suggested I apply a thin coat of acrylic medium to the watercolor paper before beginning. The paint sits on the surface, similarly to Yupo. Though I haven`t done anything worthy yet, I sense great possibility. This reminded me of painting on gessoed yupo. There`s more control and a quicker drying time. Here I tinted the gesso with cobalt blue.
I don't recall seeing David Page Coffin's work before. Very cool.
You're onto something!
I didn't know David Page Coffin painted until your reference... I know him as a sewer and author of books on sewing, specifically his book "Shirts". He's a multi-talented mam/
Love seeing your paintings, Randall--old and new! Thanks to you and David for that gesso suggestion. I'm going to give it a try.
I was wondering when you'd take up the idea! And thanks for the plug:)
I like the depth of color.
Randall, this is a wonderfully organic crazy counterpane covering a dreamscape.
Say that three times fast.
