Lonesome George #82
I call this one Lonesome George because nearly every time we drive past the lone Douglas fir there is one hawk perched high in the dead portion. Sometimes it is a red-tailed hawk and sometimes a red-shouldered hawk. I was trying a new paper, Canson 140# cold press.
I'm also posting my last post, but this time with the edge showing. A couple of you commented you like a little roughness along the edge. I do too ..... but this obviously was a mess, so I cropped it off. Just thought I'd let you see what it looks like without cropping. I pressed down along the tape edge. Next time I'll make a point of pressing harder, but I really think the problem was throughly wetting the paper and having the moisture sneak underneath the tape ... and releasing it. My recent foggy scene in the trees was also taped (on different paper) with less juicy paint). The taped edge worked just fine on that one.
