Here is a new painting of the nasturtiums by my pool. Watercolor, oil pastels & glistening puff paint.

I used this tan rag paper beneath smaller paintings and watched it collect spatters and overflow colors over time. Last night I grabbed my white oil stick and started smearing white oily sludge around with smudges of oil pastels. It is still quite tacky. I certainly had to clean up the scanner bed when I was through digitizing.
