Re: Old Timer

Now this looks very interesting. Thank you in advance for sharing your process. I assuming you are using a fine sanded paper surface?

Re: Old Timer

I suspect it will end up a beautiful, photorealistic painting and I will be very jealous! Pam

Re: Old Timer

Hi folks. Here is today's work as the weather was pretty ugly and windy. Perfect time for a head-to-head with my easel ... coming up slowly but surely

Re: Old Timer

Thank you for posting your steps. It's so intriguing to watch another artist's work progress. I cannot wait to see the finale. Do you always work flat? I often find it more comfortable when working on smaller pieces.

Re: Old Timer

Hi Karen,
I like working flat as I can get closer to the part I'm dealing with. I know some prefer working on easel but it is not oriented to detail work, I think. This piece is going to be great (of course) and especially this time it's based on my own ref Have a wonderful year and all the strenght if you're involved in the ice storm. Eric,

Re: Old Timer

This is the technique I cannot do. Finishing a piece an area at a time. It is so hard to understand how anyone can get the relationships between the colors so masterly in one go!!

What kind of paper are you using?

Re: Old Timer

Hi, thanks for the reply. The paper I'm using is a fine sanded paper called Pastemat from the French store Clairefontaine. It perfectly fits for this type of work.

Your painting is looking great! I also like this paper for using pastel pencils and hard pastels. It doesn't work well for me with soft pastels, which for my style requires a sanded paper like 320-400 grit UArt or Pastel Premier.

Technically Pastelmat is not a sanded paper as it has no sandpaper type grit on it. If I am recalling correctly the smooth tooth is created with cellulose fibers. They sure did come up with a great surface regardless of how it was done.
