new paper and edges
New paper!!!! Don't you just love trying new stuff? This is a very textured, handmade thick paper from Twinrocker. One side is cold pressed and the other is hot pressed. I love its thick texture. It accepts just as much pastel layering without the sanded feel. I only ordered a few sample sheets, but I think I am in love and will need a whole lot more!
As for the painting, my concern was edges. Lost and found is the key, with colors blurring as the eye naturally does. Don't stare... big vision/ impression is most important. At the end, save those few last strokes for the diva (focal point.)
