Studio Musings...

Oils on paper.
It seems an unlikely mix.
However, when the dimpled 140lb watercolour paper
is twice gessoed on both sides it becomes quite robust.

The surface is ideal for special effects like scraping back to reveal little
textured patches of colour retained in the dimples.  A painter's dream.

There is no need to frame behind glass either as a coat of varnish protects 
the oils in the usual way.  This way there are no glass reflections to spoil the view.
