Oil Painting Demo with Lena Danya
Artist Lena Danya creates a beautiful portrait on our new 400 Series Oil Painting Paper.
This heavyweight, 215lb (350gsm) sheet has a traditional linen textured surface that mimics canvas. It comes in 3 pad sizes with 10 sheets per pad; 9”x12”, 12”x12”, and 18”x24”, making it a convenient alternative to canvases and boards.
Here’s a bit more detail about the paper:
NO GESSO REQUIRED
The paper is pre-primed in the manufacturing process, so you don't need to gesso it prior to painting.
EXCELLENT WARP RESISTANCE
The weight of the paper is substantial enough to hold up to oil painting techniques and for unmounted finished paintings.
LOW ABSORBANCY / LOW BLEED THROUGH
Helps maintain luminosity and flexibility of oil paint by not pulling out too much oil from paint layers. Low absorbency means colors and mediums dry to expected color saturation.
PROPER FAUX LINEN TEXTURE
Helps grab paint from brush and give the paper an authentic feel, similar to canvas.
EXCELLENT FOR GLAZING
The low absorbency and bleed through allows for layers of glazes and the texture of the paper is visible through the layers.
The paper also works well for impasto techniques.
