    This was a quick study of glacial ice. My paper choice didn’t allow the my colors to move across the paper as desired.I’m going to try again and get the shape better and try for more accuracy in color. I used Confections Currents pan set and Archers 100% cotton cold press. I’ll try hot press next attempt. I’m didn’t add white for the snow but will do that on my next try!

    • Its really beautiful …. indeed …

      • Thank you. It’s funny, sometimes I cannot see my artwork until I photograph it and then it becomes apparent what I can correct or improve another time.

    • Beautiful

    • These may not be what you were trying for, but they are both very beautiful, René. I don’t know how long you’ve been using the Confections paints, but being familiar with them and the Arches paper, I’d suspect the paints to be at fault. Styles differ though, so they might be the perfect paints for you.

      • I don’t have enough experience to know much about the paints, but they haven’t seemed too troublesome. I had pre-dampened the paper and it was still so thirsty. I think the desert climate totally sucks all the moisture out? I have some hot press paper, but my last experience with that was awkward!

    • That’s a great attempt Rene.

      • Thanks. It’s one of those things that’s going to take me lots of repeated attempts at!!

    • Beautiful, Rene!

    • Beautiful.

    • Those are awesome paintings Rene 🙂

    • Beautifully done Rene! I just received the Currents set from Amazon today along with the Terrain set. Personally I like the Confections. The only set that gives me problems is the Decadent Pies and I think it’s because they have a metallic shimmer and that seems to not get “wet” and adhere to the brush.

      • I haven’t used any of their paints with the shimmer yet. I do have some that seem grainy, and take a bit more mixing to incorporate the pigment with the water to smooth out. Thanks for your input!

    • Indeed so awesome
