Shopping for Veggies

Well, this time I didn't actually set up my easel in the supermarket, like I did last time. The aisles are too narrow and it's just too busy. 

 

So I worked from photos while I painted my wife Jeanette. This one is in casein, and I captured the process in this YouTube video.

5 minutes in what a mess, 6 hours later --WOW! I had the picture up on my computer screen and one of my employees walked in and asked who took the photo. I laughed and told them to come closer, when they saw it was a painting they had to know who painted it.

A great painting. Congratulations on your honourable mention in the Richeson Casein competition - well deserved. And thank you for letting your readers know about the offer of the Casein paints, which I really appreciated.

Nice to see you working on a larger piece than usual. Your sketchbook art always seemed bigger than they actually are, a fact that came home to me when I tried filling up my own Pentalic sketchbook!

James—Do you ever have a problem with casein releasing from the brush in a natural stroke? Years ago, I worked for a firm that used casein. We had to use Ivory with the paint on occasion to have it flow correctly.—Paul Sullivan

Do you ever have a problem with Casein (or some Casein colors) flowing off the brush easily? Years ago, I worked for a firm that used Casein exclusively. Occasionally we had to use a small amount of Ivory or some mild detergent to have the paint flow naturally.

Paul, never had a problem with casein not releasing. A couple tubes of brownish pigments (raw umber, I think) have gotten gummy or curdled, though.
