Oil on Paper

Media & Methods

Maddine Insalaco stresses the role of paper as a support for nineteenth century plein air painters, and with that in mind I’ve experimented a bit with the idea, although a primed paper is more conducive to my technique than the unprimed paper she recommends. Here are two examples, one from just outside Civita Castellana when I was there with Maddine and her husband Joe Vinson, back in May; the other is of the Fontana delle Tartarughe in Piazza Mattei, Rome, on a hot day in August. The first is on an unprimed, handmade green paper; the second is on a primed (light) handmade paper.
