Paper Doll Poppies and Painting on Oil Paper by Nancy Medina

Paper Doll Poppies
by Nancy Medina
Oil on Arches Oil Paper

If you've ordered anything from Dick Blick lately, you've probably received a pad of their free Arches cold pressed oil paper. I decided to give the surface a try the other night, and was pleasantly surprised! The paper reacted well to the flow of my oils without a feeling of the brush tips dragging on a rough surface. I didn't have to prime or prepare the paper in any way. It's been about four days since I painted Paper Doll Poppies, and the color has not faded or been absorbed by the paper. Now I just have to figure out what to do with it next! Glue it to something? Hmmmm...
