A jumble of colour and texture in this study.

Studio Musings...

Heavy watercolour paper is a useful surface for oil painting.
It was primed with three coats of acrylic gesso.
This helps to preserve the paper from damage by the oils. 

I like the dimpled surface which holds on to the paint giving a textural look.

The finished work is varnished which makes it suitable for framing
without glass.  A piece of hardboard is cut to size for support behind the paper.

Another Lincolnshire view...
