  1. Wow the sense of real daylight is uncanny. I would be interested to hear about mounting paper on board - is it oil painting paper, how do you adhere the paper on the board, what kind of board is it? I play with the thought of oil painting but the ease of watercolor on paper has won so far. This method could be convenient though.

  2. Thank you Leena. I haven't liked using oil painting paper, and prefer a 300 lb smooth watercolor paper, gessoed with three layers front and back. I only mount the ones I'm happy with on board, which saves money. It also helps me feel like I can take more risks, because I'm keeping my expenses down.
