quandary over color
This one is done on a piece of 320 Uart- a bit too scratchy for my tastes. It holds lots of pastel, but will take off your skin after just a little finger rubbing. Yipes. I tried 600 and 800 and while they are smoother and easier to blend, they buckle with water media (problems for underpainting). I know I can mount them...but since my small paintings are studies that seems like a lot of work. Back to 400, the magic number...for me.
On another note: Upcoming posts-
*new method for notans
*interview with Katherine Tyrrell ( of the wonderful blog Making a Mark)
*interview with Christie Scheele
In the meantime, if you have a moment, check out my new website. I am still working on it..... but it's up. There's a button for "sign up for my newsletter." My goal is to do a small newsletter- maybe 4 times a year. If you want to receive it sign up there.
