  • The tinted paper is just right for this low sun scene. The glimmer of colour on the figures in shade is just brilliant.

  • It is an attractive piece. You’re brave trying Khadi again, I had about as much luck with it as painting on a tea towel! Intrigued by the tinting though.

  • Thank you Carole, Karen and Dennis, more experimenting perhaps after a promising start.

  • I've no idea what Khadi paper is. This is a very fine painting, I especially like the way Barry does his people. They are so simply painted, but they're real and all looking like they are doing something.

  • Thank you Lewis, Khadi paper is handmade in India and to my mind reacts to paint much like blotting paper would.

  • Khadi paper isn't sized, is it? So it'll just drink up any water, belch happily, and ask for more - I've yet to try it, but it looks as though it would benefit from dry-brush. You've got a very evocative feel to this one, so perseverance will pay off, given your mastery of just about any other surface you've laid hands on.
