Just arrived in the mail! I am very honored to get this wonderful paper. Thank you so much, Ed! The washes stay open for a while, which is something I really need for my work. I remember at the Pasadena Expo a few years ago, I heard: ‘no one’s using rough paper, you’re the only one! Everyone wants cold press!’ That’s ok, it works for me, that’s all that matters!
Those of you who visit my blog know that I love painting horses! This is a small
sketch painted using the three primary colors. This painting is a value painting, there’s no color to speak of, yet it works! That shows us that if we get the values
right, we have a successful painting regardless of color. Color is important, but it
is of less importance than value!
