I continued the challenge last week, although I’m a couple days behind. Need to do a few more per day if I want to complete the task. I have mostly been using a pretty large brush for the paper (a 26 round on 9″ x 6″ sheets), which I think helps me loosen up. Also, I found some sheets of great Arches 300 lbs. sheets I had misplaced, which make a huge difference. I used this fantastic paper for the last two self portraits; I don’t think O want to paint on anything else from now on. The experience of painting on good paper is pure joy.
