Encouraged by those artists of the 1800’s like Corot and Turner, who always painted oil on paper, I thought I would give it a go on this trip. It turns out to be rather wonderful, because since the paper is more absorbent, the oil paint dries very quickly, so you don’t have the problem on cool days of it turning into a smeary slimey mess and I found I could complete a painting in the allotted time … excellent!
I used 140lb “hot press” good quality watercolour paper, which in conservation terms is very good. This can be mounted on board and treated like a conventional oil, or simply put into a mount and framed like a watercolour under glass; I’ve just tried this and it looks good.
