One of my "issues" is still that I am "wasting" materials. I don't know why I can't get past that. This pastel of a local barn was done on Wallis paper, a very precious surface. The next two days I did small gouache paintings on postcard size paper, and I am pleased. They serve two purposes, I can do one per day, and they make great color studies for larger pieces. I will post them tomorrow.
I wrote to Dick Blick for samples of the new product from Canson, the Touch paper. They sent me samples of all the colors, and while the surface is not as gritty as the Wallis, I think I might like it. So, back to work!
