Paper Love

I love paper! I love it, adore it, when I was little I even ate it! I love to possess as many papers as I can afford. I love to try them out with different media and see what they’re capable of. This is handmade Khadi paper. I doused it with an Indian ink wash using a natural sponge and the texture of the paper created some nice stippling.

I have been trying to work out how to draw local landscape, which is very atmospheric. I particularly want to try out ways of capturing twilight and darkness and preparing the paper in this way is showing some promise. I added some highlights and lowlights with chalk and carbon but most of the work had been done.

      It’s so fabulous, so much better than canvas or anything else really. So versatile.

    I feel exactly the same way about paper. It’s irresistible, isn’t it? The feel of it and the texture. I even love the sound paper makes when it’s moved–that ringing you get with watercolour paper when you bend it.
