Prune blossom on paper
It's much easier to paint on paper versus on canvas. One of the reasons why I am mesmerized by ink painting on silk and paper. Paper and silk are absorbent compare to a gesso coated canvas, the color on paper is more natural and smooth, brush strokes are smoother as well. Some how it looks nicer, the only down side is the durability of the paper. Unless I become famous that my paintings are going be sought after hundreds years later, durability is probably not my first concern. This prune blossom painting can be addictive too, just like tea!
