Spend the pandemic than virtual painting travel with Vlad Yesilesev
St. Martin du Mont
Almost done. Had to put my light pole back in. Oopsey.
Before I scraped the light pole in.
This paper loves to be scraped. Not sure what it is. Thinking 300# Kilimanjaro cold press.
I scratched the pole in with an xacto knife point. Doesn’t leafs work well but this paper loves it. I don’t like the way the same knife acts on Fabriano or arches.
