Herron in 2008
Filed under: General, Open Studio Painting
Posted by: Paul McCall @ 10:54 pm

A good friend of mine asked, “How do you work with oil paints in a class room situation, it’s such a slow drying medium so how do you transport the wet canvas intact back and forth from the class?” This is one method, a pair of brass clippy things that attach to the stretcher bars of canvases using screws and pointed teeth to keep the canvases from shifting.

There are other methods, boxes with slots in the sides to accommodate wooden or canvas panels. I have an outdoor paint rig that has storage in the lid like that.

This one took about 90 minutes.

    I can see now how you got a “handle” on the problem of transporting your wet canvases. I just have to say that as much more convenient the fast drying acrylic medium is, there’s nothing that looks quite as good as an oil painting, as seen here in your lovely figure study.
