• Impasto Painting in Casein

    2 monthes ago - By Gurney Journey

    Can you draw with colored pencils on the surface of dry casein paint?
    Well, sort of. Usually casein dries with a surface that doesn't take the colored pencil quite as well as watercolor or gouache does. Sometimes the pencil just skids over the surface. But this time it worked, and I used the black colored pencil to quickly note some detail in the horn, cheek, and eye. I was also able to use the fountain pen over the thin paint.
    Note the thin, semi-transparent layers of blue, yellow, and green applied with a half inch flat brush in the upper left.
    What about impastos in casein? Yum, I love...
