Beauty is Bark Deep

Beauty is Bark Deep  6 x 8 in. on Carton Paper 
The background of this birch painting is the actual color of the Carton Paper. It is treated with a special resin and is much like what the  artists in the 1800's used. It will take oil  or pastel without any special surface added or if you wish you can use white or clear gesso. So far I have painted on it as it comes. It does absorb the paint giving your brush a dry feel and I loved working on it. Even the color  has a richness I like.

  1. This looks very appealing, Jean. I'd like to try it myself! I like what you've done here very much.
