Welcome to my Art Blog! I paint or draw most weekdays and sometimes finish a painting a day. I fondly call them my "Postcards from Paradise" because it's such a beautiful place the Lord made here for us.

Figure Studies in Charcoal and Chalk on Large Paper

These two sketches were drawn on large sheets of Fabriano paper.

I thought the one on the brown paper turned out especially nice. That is, until I sprayed it with fixative.

Now it has a mottled look from the spray. The drawing on the grey paper is fine, and I'm not sure why the spray shows up that way on the brown paper. Although some might think t
he effect of the spray is sort of interesting, I don't think I'll order any more of that brown Fabriano.
