If you love Uart paper and you like working on a black surface then prepare to be excited!
|Uart 400 in black|
I first heard about the new paper at IAPS in June. Uart was hoping to have some samples to share but the shipment didn't arrive. (or if it did I missed it) It is a black version of the regular Uart sanded paper.
I am still not unpacked but I had to get into the studio and put my sample to the test. To get more mileage from my sample I decided to cut it in half. Today Im sharing the first painting. For subject matter I selected two of the mini pastel paintings I did in France. I chose them because of the bright pop of color in them. I thought that this color would appear even more vibrant on the black paper.
And it did! The sample I had was Uart 400 grit which is my favorite. It performed the same as regular Uart paper. I used a variety of Terry Ludwig and Unison pastels.
I will plan on doing a more in depth review as soon as the paper becomes available. If I get any more information I will be sure to pass it on here. This is just a tease!
