Doing little illustrations and vignettes really helps me relax and take a deep breath between large and complicated paintings. I still have some sketchbooks by Stillman and Birn and I thought it would be fun to fill one of them with lots of small pictures. This time I chose Delta series with lovely ivory paper but I wasn’t sure if it would be easy to work with in the technique that I use. I have to admit I do love this paper! It has enough tooth but it is also very smooth (so great for painting thin lines) and not as harsh on my sable brushes as Arches! Yay!
