In Landscape Oil Painting on Red Ground Oil, Caroline Jasper shows why many artists use a colored ground such as red to being a painting. Working from a photograph and value study, Caroline begins each landscape in an organized and systematic way. Jasper tells the viewer that she chooses red as a ground because of its "..emotional and visual impact."
With the canvas already colored, there is no need to cover every centimeter of it. Colors are less likely to become muddied by mixing as they touch. The colored ground, allowed to consistently show through between painted brush marks, gives an overall sense of unity to the finished painting.
