Thanks, took a stab at an old painting that I believed ruined and just experimented with some colours (already mixed) left over from a different painting.

I put on thick layers on the canvas board and then scrape it off to build up the layers of colour.

Good technique.

I am convinced that European artists received hereditary knowledge from Cro-Magnon.

Thanks. It's more than likely they do but they have also taken that knowledge of art and sectioned it off into something less vital to life than it once was. They took to painting images of food just like the Cro-Magnon's but the subjects changed from being what they hoped to hunt, kill and eat to ornamental bowls of fruit.

Oh oui, c'est vrai.
I was chatting near home about the Cro-magnon and the Gauls, especially Asterix [Quelle etrange les Romaines!].

Hmm... I haven't read too much Asterix. I was thinking about the Cro-Magnon's increased brain size and adaptability that aided them to outlive the Neanderthal's - and how that may also be down to their use of art as tribal shamanism.
