Kenneth Noland: Materials

I came across this excellent and informative website whilst researching stain painting techniques.

http://www.sharecom.ca/noland/materials.html

The article covers many areas of interest to me:-

The history and different properties of oil and acrylic paints.
Why acrylic is the paint of choice for large abstract painting
Techniques used.
Cropping.
Atmospheric colours and John Ruskin
Matisse and the Fauves

Here is also a link to the official Kenneth Noland website http://www.kennethnoland.com/

The bottle of acrylic flow release I ordered arrived today so I can start exploring this technique immediately, I look forward to this and hope this will take my work to a different place.
