I didn't even know Bob Ross was still around
until my local Michaels replaced the
Liquitex grey gesso with this.
I toned a dozen 8 x 10's with it to use for my classes.
When I did a "three value study" today
and my middle value was much darker than the board
I knew things were a little "off".
The stuff is way too light to use as a measuring tool!
Then, while doing the demo below, I noticed the surface
was sucking all the oil out of the paint!
No matter how much paint I put on the brush,
it flattened right out.
I felt like I was painting with chalk!
That product clearly creates a surface that is
not conducive to my current way of painting,
But! It was fun playing with the "drag" it created.
I would call this the "Forced Dry Brush" challenge.
NOTE: I mislead you. The GJWP blog is always scheduled
to publish at 12:01 AM on the first of every month,
so please check to see the new posts anytime after that!
ALSO: The coolest thing happened today!
Barbara Shroud "found" me last week on the internet
and featured me on her very cool blog today!
Her blog makes me want to visit Charleston!
