Plein Air Pastel Tip #2

posted in: Blog, English | 1

You don’t want to fiddle around with paper sizes so that’s why I always cut in advance my format.
It’s important that you can secure your paintings in case of rain. So a quick and easy solution comes in handy.

I use multiple layers of transparent paper and tuck them together.

After finishing the painting I remove the tape and put it between the sheets of paper. Just in case the painting isn’t finished I can leave it on the gessobord.

After that I put it in a water proved bag.
