WORKING ON A COUPLE OF DATURA PAINTINGS

Here's the start of one...






I think the paper my mother gave me is Canson Montval 140#.  So far, so good with this paper.  I wonder about it, though.  Pretty darned cheap in the Daniel Smith catalog and when you remove the tape around the paper, it pulls some of the paper off :(
But okay for studies and working through things, I guess.  I won't trade it for my Arches or Fabriano (both of which I like equally well).

Every paper has its function, it's great that you've find one that works for you for this one andit doesn look like it's working judging by the begining of these new painting, I love your take on all those greens

I think this one works for studies, Teresa, but not for keepers. I'm enjoying greens now - who would have thought that??

Geez Rhonda, If I don't check on you every day, I miss so much. It looks like you've been very busy producing some beautiful pieces. I have to go back and go slowly through everything.

I like the way this is coming along so far.

Carol, I've been in a painting frenzy for some reason - not sure how long it will last or what will come out of it but I'm painting away!
