I really enjoyed the Hands On Creativity event at Plaza Art Supplies in Philadelphia!
For two days, professional artists demonstrated the latest and greatest art supplies and gave out free samples. I demonstrated oil painting on Arches Oil Paper
-- if you haven't tried it yet, you need to get some now! The paper is primed to use with oil paints, but it has all the best qualities of traditional 140# CP Arches paper. It has enough tooth to use with dry media such as pastel and charcoal, and it's is absorbent enough to use with watercolor, inks, or printing mediums. So besides being ready to use for oils, it's also perfect for multi-media artworks! Here's some photos form the event...
