Dappled Path BIG

The Canson Mi-Tientes Touch paper I ordered for the large version of Dappled Path has arrived. I'm not familiar with it and this is a good experiment. My first impression of this paper is that it reminds me of LaCarte but with a coarser tooth. Linear marks are fat - I don't like that but it might keep me from getting too detailed. This painting is 25 x 18 inches and it feels like I can't see the forest for the trees. I'm looking through a reducing glass to get enough distance to see what I'm painting. It is a struggle to get the loose look I want with a little pastel stick. I may have to try this again in oil or acrylic.

Of the six small studies I painted in preparation for this painting, I have selected the first one for my reference and I'm starting at the top.

The studies will be going to Daily Paintworks for auction or Buy It Now. If you are interested in purchasing one before I post them at Daily Paintworks, let me know.
