Foxy - WIP 2
Again, this is soft pastel on ColourFix Suede and I'm enjoying this new paper. I really think my favorite paper is still velour or real suede paper/matboard but this is nice and, to me, is superior to PastelMat.
Both papers (ColourFix Suede and PastelMat) seem to both feel and respond the same way but I like the colors better in the ColourFix plus, there don't seem to be any flaws in the paper as there are in the PastelMat. I just finished a painting using the PastelMat and had a little trouble covering some bare dots and also one bare line where there wasn't any surface. It worked out ok but it's just a lot easier when there aren't any flaws.
I'll post the painting I painted on the PastelMat tomorrow and perhaps another update on little Foxy!
