Six days painting in Nahiku, Maui
I still have the attic vent slabs to add after raising the roof a half inch. Then give the area under the house more room, add window panes & architectural shadows, finish the teas, the large clump of plants needs more definition. Tom's painting is on my left, he built this rain shelter.
A painting problem perhaps, I used a commercial Glidden Primer as gesso on this panel, I ran out of my regular acrylic gesso. It is soaking up the water in my acrylic paint very fast, causing me to keep adding water. This is only happening here in Makawao now, the humidity is 58% this morning, no rain. This did not happen in Nahiku where it was raining every day.
I'm going to test a small area, 50% poly on the right window pane area, with a water based gloss polyurethane and paint on it when it dries. That may seal it, I know coating a gessoed support with Tip: jar white acrylic aids painting in making the acrylic paint go on smoother.
It will act as an isolation coating, now to cover the whole support panel.
10-16-15, I'm doing the house tight and re-doing the window panes.
10-26-15, yesterday was the first time I ever saw it green from Kaupo to Makawao.
