Same paper as in previous post, but I stretched this paper using paper tape on gatorboard. It's nice and flat. Guess I'll have to bite the bullet and get used to stretching paper ... when I am skilled enough with painting to warrant nicely stretched paper. Until then, I will stay with working on paint, water, and mixed color while using drafting tape or nothing with the paper.
The best part was discovering it wasn't difficult to get the paper tape off the gatorboard.
Tightly based on a loose painting in a book. I need to loosen up!
