Your drawing is just wonderful! So detailed. Wish I could watch the process as you paint it. Better still, wish I could do something like this!

I love seeing the step-by-step progress as you work on a painting. It's just fascinating to me. Thank you for sharing the painting as it is created.

Hey! I really like your beautiful birds! Two questions for you: Do you use frisket or masking fluid on the edges of your birds? and Do you find that the paper buckles more with the very large size?

Oops had some typos in that last one:) This is soooo beautiful! It is luxurious ... I use Arches and love the weight of it and durability. I like the blocks. I think it's made of cotton rag so is actually a fabric ... which is kind of amazing. The yellow and grayish green on this bird are so harmonious. Love your attention to detail!

It is a great paper isn't it Geninne, I have used it for years and it is probably the only one that can stand up to the abuse I put paper through. The 300lb (640grs) hot press is the one I use. I get it from Daniel Smith and it is much less expensive there.
your painting is going to be wonderful.
cheers and hello from Burgess, by the way he tried to bath in a glass of milk the other day, too funny.

I love Arches paper, my Grandma introduced me to it recently. It is quite pricey in Australia, but so worth it!
