BobBlast 95 "Drawing Back onto an Acrylic Painting"

Drawing Back onto an Acrylic Painting

I have just finished a Mentor Workshop in my studio in Arroyo Grande, California — so I am back working on my own work that I started during the workshop — a large acrylic painting on canvas — and now, I am drawing back into the canvas with charcoal and pastel.

Why? I like to draw. I also like to combine pure paintings and drawing at the same time.

Later, after I have finished, I’ll “seal” the charcoal with a fixative — I prefer SpectraFix, a casein-based fixative used for charcoal, pastels and watercolors.

Watch the video! I demo drawing with charcoal and give you a close-up of my materials.

Thank you for your interest, questions, comments and support!

  1. I so much appreciate the information given to us here in this video concerning how to use acrylic and charcoal and more than that, the fact of the Spectra Fix product! Now I know what to use.

  2. I'd LOVE to take one of your workshops, BUT I live I live in southern Italy. Kinda far, so I'll just have to hope that you will someday offer an online workshop…..or two!

  3. I love this and all your work. Where could I see this painting finished? I love it so far and would love to see the finished piece. Thanks

  4. Thank you, Bob. These videos are hugely helpful. Can you continue to paint with acrylic after you spray the fixative to seal the charcoal?

  5. For those of us who done have the luxury of folks carting off our Art, what about storage?
    I don't have much space, but I'd look like a hoarder, if I did as much Art as seems necessary to get even good enough to put in my own walls without shame

  6. I really enjoy watching your videos. I noticed your hands during a  close up. They look just like my father's hands who was also an artist. I could see that you have thumbnails like mine, which are flat and wide. In the study of Personology it indicates creativity. I create every single day. Thank you so much for your informative and very entertaining videos.

  7. I love watching your videos. I don’t think it’s like watching someone knit. You are exiting to watch and inspirational. Maybe a workshop someday?
