Thank you, Shar. Real magic here is definitely connected with the paper, which is Hahnemühle cold pressed. I cannot achieve the same effects when painting on Arches or Fabriano, e.g. my rabbits on Arches are very soft, while Hahnemühle creates beautiful rich textures.
Interesting! I have yet to try Hahnemühle paper; the best I have used so far is Arches. I have Fabriano studio paper in both cold and hot press. So far, have been painting portraits on Arches cold press. Am going to try hot pressed for the next portrait; but don’t have it in Arches.
Shar, do not get me wrong, please! Arches is the state-of-the-art, fantastic paper! Every brand paper creates different sort of visual effects and textures, and in the painting above (Two Hares), you can see how it may turn on Hahnemühle paper 🙂
