Ballet Studio Sketch

12x10 oil on paper (paper size 16x12)
Discovered a new paper from Arches specifically made for oil painting.
It's different from some of the others I've tried. It definitely allows for heavier paint and isn't very absorbent. I painted this last night and it is still wet and the brush strokes are quite visible. 
I saw that v....vaughan shared her painting recently which was done on the same material. I'll let her figure out how to mount and frame! 
There is no oil bleed through - the paint remains on the surface beautifully. It is smooth and I love a smooth surface to work on.

(I took this and posted from the iphone. I will update it with a better image soon)

Comme prévu, après mes longues semaines éloignées des blogs, me revoici parmi vous !
Je suis heureuse d'ouvrir aujourd'hui la page de votre dernière publication.

La peinture de vos ballerines est pleine de douceur et dégage une atmosphère agréable.
Gros bisous

Hi Robin,
It's a different subject for you, and beautifully painted. I'd love to see it in real life, but from here, the oils - colors and strokes - look very good on the paper.
