The first thing I did with the new paper was to paint on it. I wanted simply to respond to it without overthinking. Next I put it to my paper test. I was more deliberate and analytical. I tested how the paper responds to harder pastels vs. softer pastels. I also did a layer test. I wanted to find out how many layers the paper would take. Finally I painted the same thing using the same pastel palette on each of the 4 grades of paper. I've been playing with the new Uart dark sanded pastel paper this week and having a great time!
I ALSO MADE A VIDEO REVIEW/DEMO OF UART DARK. HERE IS THE LINK TO THE VIDEO:
