Oil Paper Trials
12" x 9", Graphite & Oil on Paper
These are two trials of a new material to me, Arches Oil Paper. Similar to 300# Watercolor Paper, this product is specially formulated not to "bloom" from absorbed oils and solvents around the brush strokes. It is still a very porous material and you need to get some solvent or oil into the paper to keep it from grabbing. I laid down a wash of let down oils and painted overtop with full bodied paint. As soon as I get the hang of it, I hope to do more to combine pencil drawing with oil painting.
