View Full Version : GR-oil stains on paper.

in viewing some work by Gerhard Richter I was reminded of work I had done a few years ago - oils on paper.. I couldn't afford canvas so I painted on bristol board paper... I liked the resistance of painting on a hard surface .. unfortunately I was not to aware of things like archivability and longevity of this technique and the oils leached out from the brushwork and stained the paper a nice brown after a few years.. some of the work by Gerhard (oils on paper ) showed the same effect... so I decided I liked that look and tried to emulate it with AR...

delicious colors and I like the forms and textures as well. great piece!
was admiring the value variations in the large smoked salmon area...I know what you did there... you stinker. :) you are so busted! glad I inspired you. :) Also loving the area where the chalk came off that area onto the background. that is just delicious.

'twas the macaroni shapes that alerted me before I called the forensics lab.
