Finally an image I am satisfied with. After a week of experimenting with the Dr. Ph. Martin paint I finally had a breakthrough, thanks to something my friend Lydia Makepeace said about how she uses the paint: just use the dropper to apply the pigment directly to wet paper. Ah, the clouds parted & the heavens opened! Such a better working method for this paint. Huge thanks to Lydia for the insight! I persevered with this paint, because the colors are so vibrant & different, than my favorite Winsor & Newton's. I am excited to see where things go now. Happy Tuesday Y'all!
