awe inspiring work. Do you use a primer on the paper? I have been told that the oils will
disintergrate the paper over time.
No I do not. Most early open air oil sketches (late 17th through mid 19th centuries) were executed on unprimed paper. The key is that the paper be acid free and that the work eventually be mounted on rigid surfaces. One can look at works of Valenciennes, Corot, and more recently Church on paper and they are in perfect condition today. I like workiing on this surface particularly when I am travelling as it is light, portable and lets me work really fast. The paper absorbs the first layer instantly so one color can be placed over another without muddying the mix.
