Still using the Canson XL, my travel kit, no 8 black velvet and no 2 rigger. No-sketch-direct painting.
The trick with this paper is to use very little water. I give the paint pans a good spray of water and the only water on the brush is what’s left after I clean it between colors. The Canson is not too forgiving so you can’t lift, and blending after the first 3 seconds is impossible. Paint dries very quickly. But I think I’m getting decent results and it’s not wasted paper!5+

I would say that this is more than a decent result. You’re very determined, sticking with a dubious paper – but getting good results. Love the pepper in particular.0

Judy, this is really impressive and that was my thought BEFORE I read all the challenges you dealt with doing this, plus without a sketch! So now I’m super impressed! I love how you left white spaces. The veggies are wonderful! Love the lighting in this 🙂0

This is so good especially as it was probably so troublesome for you to do.
Reminds me of my allotment, which I must get off to for watering up the glasshouses.

A wonderful impressionistic view of the photo Judy which in my opinion looks much better than the actual reference photo. Well done for persevering with the canson XL you are certainly getting the results using it.0

This is a prime example of perseverance, Judy! You’re managing to outsmart that really awkward and annoying paper! Just goes to show, eh? I’m really impressed with your results. Wow! 😀0
