In completing the Gondola sketch I observed the following:
- Removing masking over painted areas also removes the paint. This is the downside of the fact that this paper allows for such easy lifting techniques.
- In the same way, the smallest addition of water to a painted area will immediately disturb this first layer.
- I tried an automatic eraser on this paper and was pleased to see that it did lift out paint without any apparent impact on the paper: this is a good way to add highlights in small ares.
- The colors seem to remain more vivid than on the cold press paper. This picture was taken with a flash inside - so the colors are not true.
As you can see, I am still procrastinating before starting a larger, more demanding painting:-)
Have a great week!
