Acid-Free Paper: Trees in the Summer
Watery trees in sunset. A painting on paper, acrylic watered down and used straight from the tube. The acid-free paper used in this painting is fairly transparent. It warps the surface to wet it down, but flattens out nicely when dry. I originally used this paper to paint with the touch painting method. Water-based oil paints are an effective medium when rolled onto Masonite and covered with tracing paper and then drawn on with fingers.
