A few week back I had the opportunity to meet Rebecca Crowell a painter who was teaching a Master Class on Oil and Wax in Mineral Point WI. I wasn't able to get into the class, but Rebecca was so kind to invite me to pop in and see works in progress. I saw that they were working on paper. She later explained to me it was a paper suitable for oils. Well of course I had to get some and try it out! Here are some of the results.
It is lovely to work on and because it isn't as expense as canvas it is a great way to experiment. I tried two different kinds, one was a canvas paper an another a mixed media paper. I liked both, the canvas has a texture which is like a stretched canvas and the mixed media paper is smooth.
