|'On to Distant Meadows' 12x9 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
I never let a piece of paper go to waste so I decided to repurpose the cloud demo I did for my Patreon page. It is a piece of Canson Mi-Teintes gray paper (unsanded) To give myself a fresh start I simply rubbed in the blue and white pastel marks with a paper towel. Now I had a blue toned piece of paper.
|The start of a new painting|
I enjoyed painting on the blue toned paper. It actually made it look like the trees has some sky holes! Click on the photo below to enlarge it and see details of the blue paper peeking through the tree layers. I also like how bits of blue show up in the grasses making this area more interesting. Try blue paper for your next tree painting!
