Dear reader,


Today the first layer of a new painting on paper (20/20″, 50/50 cm, a little bit bigger than the last months).

Again, only using three colors (pink, turquoise, and Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold). Plus black and white. I loved the beautiful soft tones that came from mixing the Gold, Turquoise, and White.

The black is tissue paper. And I used some newspaper. The fun thing is that I mostly used plastic cards for applying the paint. I like it that way! You ‘scrape’ or ‘plaster’ the paint on the paper – depending on the thickness of the layer.

It’s also perfect for applying glue (matte medium). Usually, I use my fingers, but this surface is too big for that. I think it’s relatively economical this way.

Next week, next layer!
