White on Brown: Sellwood Park Sketches

My favorite fast sketches from the recent Sellwood Park expedition. Experiments in white tempera paint on brown paper.

I feel like I was a little hit and miss about getting a good balance of light and dark in this technique of white paint on brown paper. The ones that were fun but a little more erratic in the balance are over at, if you'd like to see more.


  1. These are wonderful. It's a technique worth exploring. I'd live to see more

    1. Thanks, Mark! It sure works well for the bright and sunny months of summer--will have to bring this setup to Cathedral Park for the next sketchcrawl!

  2. fantastic....I love the positive and negative approach. Hope to see more in action at Cathedral Park!
