PirateCaptain by PaulAbrams PirateCaptain by PaulAbrams
14x11" oils on multimedia paper....this paper advertises that it takes all mediums due to its impervious resin saturated paper content. I figured I'd work directly with oils on it to see what it does. The underpainting, which was thin with no medium, was absorbed into it without any color changes, but blending was a bit difficult. the second, layer, containing walnut alkyd medium mixed into the paint, went on just fine. If you like working on a rigid paper surface, I definitely recommend this paper

This painting is was based on a drawing posted here: paulabrams.deviantart.com/art/…

Have to give that multimedia paper a go, looks like it works well for this type of work, nice smooth finish.
