Today I went back to painting in oil paints ... but with a twist. I want to paint with oils on paper! To do this safely so it is archival I have been devising a way to prepare the paper so it doesn't actually come into contact with the oil paint. I first blocked out an area with gesso on paper. Then started painting with oils on top of the gesso. This is about 7x9 inches and its on a larger 8.5x11 heavy stock craft paper. It took about 30 minutes to get this sketch together. But the whole painting may take days to complete.
