On a Dime

I'm half way through a commission, restarted that one commission over again, and have a LOT of other paintings waiting in the wings. The ideas are flowing. But I felt I really needed to finish this one. So, I took the twenty minutes I needed to finish it. I painted it on Rives BFK White (a printmaking paper) and it holds the paint differently than 140lb CP Watercolor Paper. It feels a lot like 300lb. Really sucks all the paint up. You need a lot of pigment to make a statement, but you have to be careful not to over work the area as the paper can start to peel. It's good to push yourself every now and then.
