Shell on Paper

7.5" x 5.5"
Oil on paper

I made it to FL - it's so peaceful here. the temp is perfect, breezy and birds singing. Today, I set up my computer and painting studio.

This painting was done on watercolor paper because I don't have any boards primed - the paper is very absorbent and dries somewhat quickly, which I liked. If I used the paint heavier in places - I could still blend it out and not have to wait for it to dry a little. Although, the ease of just cutting a sheet of watercolor paper and taping it to a hard surface is nice, I think I like the wood surface the best - can't really tell you why, it just feels better.
