Took this pic 20 min ago, while I stoped for a cupa.

I like the tones and the feel of wide open space .

Same here. It's looking great, and Jim even has the same palette as I do.....albeit much, MUCH cleaner ;)

Nicely done. Curious about your paper stretcher - what is it that you are using?

Hi D'arcy,Here is the web address

I find it works fine, and doesn't get in the way too much when painting.
I posted this painting on a couple of other sites and you are the second person to ask. I should get commission for advertising!!

Cool idea - can you do wet-in-wet with this while it is drying, or does it need to do a complete dry before you use it?

I would imagine you can do wet in wet, I haven't tried, although I suppose I have, by re wetting after the paper has tightened.
Sorry to be confusing, but I suppose the answer is Yes.
