#014 Hazy Moon
This is a tough one. I’m trying to capture the hazy moon of a specific night. …. And I’m going to complain about paper again. This-heavy-weight –paper-sketchbook is great for even color but when I tried to scrub some of the paint off around the moon, I broke the surface of the paper. Ah well…. My goal is to experiment. I need to know what each of my tools can do. After so many years of not painting I seem to remember my colors well, but not what different papers do. But I must admit I used to do allmost all my painting on hard, hot pressed illustration board.
This is the same paper I used on the downy woodpeckers (#013) and the Nene goose (#011) and Dewey Morning (#008). I should try something similar on better paper.
