24 x 18, watercolor and pastel on hot press Arches
Last week I used hot press Arches to paint the figure model "Rachel" and I enjoyed the feel of the smooth surface of the paper. I am definitely exploring this new surface for painting on. It doesn't hold much pastel, but more than expected. It's worth experimenting more with this mixed media technique. Being a painter, I don't have to make excuses for trying new things. It's expected!
