Trying Oil Paper

IMG_0092

One aspect of plein air painting so far that I wasn’t sure if I liked was the canvas texture, which seems to show through a lot in such a quick painting. Then I thought of this ‘oil paper’ made by Arches. I found some in the excellent art store here in town and bought a piece to try out. This picture is a lesson from a library book I have out at the moment. I was pleased with the result.
