Pears in sunPosted: April 5, 2013
The pears were on the counter, the light was hitting them the right way and I grabbed a cut sheet of paper from my studio and painted them fast. As I started to paint I gave myself a little slap on the head as a reminder to use watercolour paper more often. When I’m in a rush I often grab my Moleskine book but the paper is just not as good. It doesn’t take glazes as well, the pigments always appear duller, and the white of the paper is just not as bright. When will I learn?
