|'Summer Buzz' 5x7 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
The paper for today's painting gave me a distinctly different effect than my usual favorite paper (Uart) for landscapes. It gave me a softer look and feel.

I usually like a crisp feeling in my landscapes. I may paint some areas with a soft focus of soft edges but overall my paintings are crisp with bolder mark-making. I decided to try my same technique on the LaCarte paper. The result was a much softer and dreamy feel to my painting.
Paper choice made the difference! I will be trying more landscapes on LaCarte!
|This is a painting done on Pastel Premiere white sanded paper....see the difference?|
