For this painting I decided to use another base to paint on. I have been doing a lot of illustrations lately and in doing so have fallen in love with the stark white of the Bristol illustration paper. I love the smoothness of the surface and the brilliant contrast it gives to the work. Looking at the weight of the paper I thought that if I used a light wash the brilliant whites of the paper would really make the colors of a fish like the Rio pop off the paper.
