Michael's excellent ground, with the addition of pigments PG7 and PR101 to create a neutral temperature, darkish green.
"My personal favourite! I created this with portrait painters in mind to act as the perfect complimentary green with a deep mossy nature. This colour is designed to push all those red and brown shades forward so they glow like we see in all colours of skin. However, no sooner than letting an artist friend loose with my Moss Green she reported it was ideal for landscapes in addition!
After talking to artists and listening to their needs, I have specifically formulated my primer to be non-absorbent. This means artists will no longer be frustrated by the dullness of paint which has had the oil drawn out resulting in a flat, muted looking paint surfaces. Countless numbers of artists have called me over the years asking the question, “Why has my paint gone dull overnight?” My question in return; “Did you paint upon an acrylic primed surface?” The replies have always been, “Yes how did you know?”
Although this product is non-absorbing it will provide a strong bond to the layers of paint applied with just enough tooth so as not to be greasy in feel. The result after painting upon my non-absorbent acrylic primer: oil paint colours that look as though you have just brushed them on to your canvas and a long-lasting support that will not decay over the years!"
Apply 2 coats. The first coat may be applied 25% diluted with water to increase flow and coverage if required. Apply a second coat once the first coat is touch dry (approx.. 1 hour). This product may be applied to linen, wood, MDF and other supports to produce a strong, flexible, permanent, highly pigmented white ground. Suitable for as a ground for both acrylic and oil paint.
