I was wondering if anyone has information regarding Beksinski's painting materials, especially in regards to details such as the mediums he used while painting, ratios of turpentine, oil, varnish, and so on. Sadly I cannot read Polish so I am unable to read most of Beksinski's letters where he might have mentioned these details (although feel free to respond in Polish, or post relevant excerpts from his letters in Polish, I will try to understand it through translation software).
The videos on Andy Tezner's youtube channel have given great insight into Beksinski's painting process, but none of them give a clear picture of his specific paints or mediums.
I've always been amazed at how vibrant Beksinski's colors were when he was only painting on acrylic primed boards, and also the speed at which he was able to complete an oil painting, so I am curious as to what painting oils and varnishes he may have been using.
