Join John Derry for an in-depth discussion in this video Grain rotation, part of Painter 2017 Essential Training.
- [Narrator] Painter uses paper grain…to add an essential hallmark…associated with many expressive mediums,…and that is the inner action of a delivery tool,…like a paint brush, chalk, or pencil…with the underlying medium to which it is being applied.…The appearance of applied chalk for example,…is a combination of both the ground color pigment…of the chalk stick,…as well as how this medium interacts with…and reveals the underlying papers' uneven texture.…As such, any underlying uneven grain or texture…associated with the receiving medium…is the key component to the look of chalk.…
