Mostly I write about sports, of course, but once in a while it is nice to slip in something different. Below is a painting that I did a couple years ago on old manuscript paper. I like to paint on material like that, I don’t think many others do.
Fantastic! How did you keep the manuscript ink from running?
Thanks for the question. Under the gouache I applied a layer of gesso.
Thanks so much! I just came into possesion of some very old hand-written manuscripts and sheet music frim 17th/18th century. I want to paint transparent images on them, so that the script shows through. I have transparent gesso, but I’m terrified that even this will cause the ink to run. I’ll have to sacrifice the most tattered one for testing. I was also considering a spray-on glaze. Wish me luck! Julia
Send me a scan when you are finished. Love to see it.
I like this painting too Charles – can’t decide if you’re looking forward to Halloween or just got back from a Grateful Dead concert , either way two of my favorite things !
