You have done another great one. What kind of paper do you paint your oils on?

Erik van Elven said...

Thanks Douglas!
It's Fabriano watercolour paper, 300grams, with 3 layers of gesso.

Your paintings are so beautiful. Going through your blog absolutely amazes me. I'm working on an oil painting also with a limited palette just to get used to oils since I work strictly in pastels and now you have inspired me to finish it.!

Thank you Hilda. The way you handle pastels should translate to your oil paintings without much of a problem.
A limited palette is a good way to get a feel for the paint and to create a harmonious painting. Thanks again, happy painting, Erik.
