So I decided the colouring on the Stonehenge paper was taking too long and decided to switch to using Daler Rowney Murano paper. Its not a true black, the paper is called "Midnight" but it is close enough for me. I do remember writing that more than likely I would end up switching paper, and I did really try to do this picture on the Stonehenge, but the time it was taking me to do a small area was driving me insane, so hence the switch. I can always work on the other piece in the future and than compare the 2.
So here we have this version on the black paper coloured up to the point of the last post on the Stonehenge paper. It is a bit of a different look, and it takes less time. About an hour compared to the 3 it took on the Stonehenge paper. The paper will take about 3-4 layers before you sometimes have a hard time overlapping colours, but that works really well with my style.
For some reason I really feel like I am painting when using this paper, the colours just seem to glide over each other and blend the way acrylics do for me when I paint. It is probably hard to explain.
Not really sure what this will look like on other monitors. I have such a hard time scanning dark coloured papers.
And just so I can gloat, I think today was the first day I have ever won when playing Scrabble. I kicked every one's doup. ;) (I usually can't spell to save my life)
