Turpentine diaries 9/24/17

The unfinished painting The Press is 40″ x 50.”  I’ve used RGH’s walnut-ground flake white for a couple of weeks and I like it more and more.  It keeps its body even when thinned to the constancy of gouache, such as the white shirts in the painting.

I plan to write about preparing canvases soon.  I primed a large painting (44″ x 60″) with Williamsburg’s oil ground yesterday.  I’ve used that product before with happy results.
