Good flake white

Utrecht flak white continues to surprise me with its good performance. Considering its modest price, it’s a good value.

I am using it throughout this painting titled The Fair. It covers well and handles crisply. When thinned it retains strong covering strength. An excellent flake white. I ordered another tube this morning.

I’ve just started the overpainting with The Fair, so I still have a long way to go before I am finished.

The Fair is 44″ x 60.”

I started drawing on a 36″ x 48″ canvas yesterday. There is a lot of green in the painting. That’s the best way I can describe it.

I have only 6 prepared canvases left (not including the one I started drawing); four 40″ x 52,” and two 40″ x 56.” The canvases represent the last batch from my big canvas order from several years ago. I am comparing prices for a new roll. I plan to buy linen this time.
