Self taught artist, Richard Friar is doing something different. His life has taken him on many quests, from olympic trainer to farmer to property developer, an environmental champion of the '90's,entrepreneur, film maker and now artist. He started painting in 2008, after he and his creative partner and author, Wendy, completed their film 'Think About It!' about the future of peace building in Iraq. A difficult relationship with his son that drove Richard to a catalytic moment where he was painting a picture as a way to reach out to his son. The paint began to haemorrhage across the canvas and, in desperation, Richard grabbed the fire ashes he'd cleaned from the wood fire and threw them on the canvas. This random act saved the moment on the canvas and, from this point, with growing intensity, he continued to paint using wood fire ashes. Three years later, when his son tragically died, he came to see that particular painting as a sign from within his unconscious mind.

The magic of mediums is that there is a painting medium for just about every type of application, especially with acrylics. Want to paint very texturally? Impasto Gel or Modelling Compound. Want matte paint? Matte Medium & Varnish. Need more working time? Slow or Thick Slow Medium. But sometimes you’ll find that there is one medium that you use, time and time again. For me, the workhorse in my studio is the Clear Painting Medium.

It’s easy to get into a rut when choosing colors for a painting. After all, there is something to be said for using the same colors, so you know exactly what to mix in order to achieve the combination you need. But if you are finding your paintings are getting a bit stale, or you want to stretch yourself, simply changing the colors you use can be a great exercise.
