"Tulips" 8x8 oil on Arches paper for oils
This was an experiment. I heard that Arches put out a paper just for oils and I had to give it a try. It came in my last Blick order. The surface is very nice, smooth and soft. The paint handled differently though. My brush seemed to want to stick wherever I put it down and the paint did not want to move. It did get easier as I went along especially after I added more OMS. I think I'd like to try this with very thin paint, almost like a watercolor. Was I supposed to gesso it first?
