|11/13/13 Still life M N O. Platinum Carbon ink, Van Gogh watercolors, Fabriano |
In my ongoing series of alphabetical still lifes, I present M N O.
Technical note: This is my first test of the 140-pound Fabriano hot-press paper I bought the other day. The sizing takes Platinum Carbon ink without incident, and the paints sink into the surface at about the same rate as all the cold-press papers I’m used to, so it behaved predictably based on my experience. I had to rewet the paper a couple times in one spot and lifted color in another spot, and all was well. So far, so good.
