'Pink Hellebore' - notes

'Pink Hellebore' - notes

Deviation submitted on Apr. 1st. Painted on Fabriano Torchon cold press (100% cellulose). I did not love the paper that much. The surface was too rough and not very absorbent. I prefer painting wet-on-wet, and on a small painting like this, the water surface tension became a problem. I didn't manage to create nice gradients/blending - not sure if it was the paper or the small working area. I also hoped that with 270 gsm/130 lb, stretching will not be necessary but tough luck - the weight was not enough to prevent buckling... In addition to testing new paper, the second goal was trying a minimal palette. I started well with the background
