(I just noticed my Time Zone was set to Greenwich, England so I changed it to minus 6 hours. I didn’t actually post this on Feb. 1st cuz I don’t have a Time Machine. Yet. And besides, when I do get it working I’ll be able to go a lot farther out than just 6 hours.)
Started this last last Friday and finished it over the weekend. Painted-image, 8″ x 5″ on Arches 140lb. hotpress (i.e. smooth) paper. I failed to mention in “Have a beautiful summer” that you ought to add a block of White-tempera to your set. I prefer it over the tube of white that comes with the set of 12 Pelikan cakes. Here’s the link to the sizeable tempera “cakes” sold individually by, dun-dun-dun du-u-un…Dick Blick: http://www.dickblick.com/products/blick-tempera-cakes/ . Get a square of heavy foil and wrap it around the thng leaving the top open. This way you’ll keep your hands and everything else clean. I have a round covered tin it fits in perfectly but you can simply use a ziplock bag.
