Read about this approach...

I discovered that when a broad brush charged with color is swept over the glossy gel-medium-coated high-surfaced illustration board, the paint is immediately repelled, and creates exciting textures resembling rocks and mountains. Since the board is very smooth, it is also easy to make changes. I utilize these qualities and take an improvisational approach to paint subjects such as rocks, mountains, and canyons.

I start the painting with strong emotion and great speed. I work at white heat for about twenty minutes, trying to cover the entire surface of the board. Gradually, through the act of painting, I discover the subject matter and exert more conscious control to guide the painting to its finishing stage. The painting develops in the very process of painting.
