Bright, loose washes on oatmeal paper made a very nice textural result, much more so than the photo demonstrates. It has a coarse, irregular feel, and unlike watercolor paper, washes will fill in the lower depths. However, dry brush applications can stay at the top level.
Washes on firm bond paper makes this a very smooth display. Being an even, flat surface, applied washes float across the surface and graded blends are easily accomplished. The forest areas are wet-in-wet technique.
A pre-stormy sky constrasts with brighter rocks and foliage in this bond paper painting. Flat wash layers, scraping and wet-in-wet techniques can be seen.
Sometimes it's refreshing to see skies that are grayed rather than bright and blue. Here it allows the lower contrasts to be stronger and is a comfortable repeat in the waters as well. Negative painting appears on both sides of the painting.
