the four gentlemen. The background looks a little mottled. I happened
to experiment with a paper I usually reserve for woodcut; Gampi
off white, that I found through McClains. It seems to photograph
that way because of the buff character of the paper. Sometimes I
know that I'm back on track with this water/ink art by the sound
of brush on paper. There seems to be a sweet sound when the paper
is accepting of the brush. When an artist gets into that sweet spot it
really seems like the paper is drawing nourishment from the brush.
