Hi, I am the son of two artists and began painting in my hometown of Richmond, Virginia before I could walk. I was a rare combination of artist and athlete so I moved to Los Angeles in 2008 to play football for USC. I left the team my sophomore year to focus on painting and filmmaking, applying the same focus and discipline from my football career to my art. I primarily work in oils, and spend most free days painting “en plein air” around Los Angeles.

Dear Paint Coach – I've been told that you need to remove varnish from an oil painting before you can paint over it……and also warned against using Gesso to cover an oil painting that you want to paint over…..your video doesn't say anything about whether the painting you covered was varnished or not – can you clarify these questions?

Thank you! I've just recently wondererd if gesso could be applied over the oils. I suppose you could now paint in acrylics after covering the oil paint?

Turn it upside down to eliminate interference of the old painting when you start the new one. Add a touch of any colour to the white gesso to cover the old image more effectively.

I avoid putting gesso back on old oil paintings because there's a risk the gesso will flake off if the oul underneath hasn't fully hardened. I've been painting over old paintings with titanium white and leaving for months which creates an interesting ground I'm not sure I'm fully happy with. I believe Monet used to prime his canvases with white

Hey, I've used acrylic gesso to prepare my canvas for oil paintings, and purchased canvas that has been prepared that way, intended for "oil paints". If paint sticks on it one way, why not another? I also heard about all of the "great masters" paintings that had multiple paintings underneath.

I recently “inherited” several large canvas oil paintings that my grandma painted like 30-40yrs ago. Are the canvases salvageable to reuse for an acrylic pour or are they too old? I don’t want to keep the originals because quite frankly they are UGLY but if I could use the canvas for another project that would be awesome and very easy on the wallet, if I had to replace canvases that size (24×36 – 12×36 – 22×28). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx

That's a cool way to reuse a canvas but you'll have to wait for the paint to dry on it, The way I reuse a canvas is to use a thin coat of white spay paint that has no gloss and let it dry and put another coat till the old oil painting is gone,……

Sennelier colored acrylic gesso in the color Red Ochre is sold out everywhere. I need to tone my ampersand boards for a 4 day workshop. How would you tint this, with straight oil paint or acrylic paint?

Reply
Dick budig 14/08/2021 - 16:41

Water based gesso over oil paint . . . NO NO. But you could certainly put another coat of oil paint over it. Many artists like flake/lead white as a painting base. If you like a toned base, you could add a little raw umber to your white. Lead white is great as a base because lead paint cross links to other oil paints building a strong bond with succeeding layers.

gesso is water based and should never be applied over oil . It might seem like it's sticking but could eventually peel off and cause cracking. Instead use an oil-based primer.

Reply
May Bukowski 14/08/2021 - 16:41

I thought you shouldn't put gesso over oil paint because it'll crack over time??? ive always been told by professors to never do that and under no circumstances to ever paint acrylic over oils? I have 2 big oil paintings I found and planned on reusing but for acrylic paintings and after doing a bunch of reading my research has led me here and left confused lol

An old trick I have used is to spray it with easy off oven cleaner. It will lift a lot of oil paint. You can sand a little and then gesso.
