    Greg Manchess: Oil or Acryl?

    Hello
    I saw this GREAT Artist Greg Manchess at Youtube.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OVU7tKxki8

    I really like his art to paint. But i like to know which colours he use. Oil or Acryl?
    Something special?
    Where can i read something about his art to paint?
    Does he use only references or does he draw most from "memory"?

    Perhaps you can give me links to Artists who draw like him?

    Nice Greetings and Thanks!

    Silwynar!

    I haven't got the money to buy this.
    I'm from German.
    Does anybody know what kind of paper he use?
    Some king of paperhangings oder is it extra paper for oil?
    I wanted to know what paper it is, because i wanted to try that with my Acry.

    Greg paints on a special primed canvas that comes in a roll. He doesn't even stretch it, just tapes it up to a board.
