Canson 88

“Summer night in the garden”  watercolour, gouache and ink on Canson 88

(10 by 12 inches/25 par 30 cm)

Talking to artists is good. Good to exchange ideas, information.

I met  Michel Dupont in his studio, open to the public for the art circuit la tournée des 20. While talking about  techniques, works and papers, he showed me  the Canson 88. ” It is  for silkscreen but could be what your  looking for” he told me.

Above, my first try with it. I like the smoothness and absorbancy of the paper and the rendition of the colour. So far so good!

I still have to try the beautiful handmade paper made by Michel Dupont…

C’est bon de parler entre artistes. Bon d’échanger des idées, des infos.

J’ai rencontré Michel Dupont dans son studio, ouvert au public pendant la tournée des vingt. En parlant  techniques, travail, papiers, il m’a montré le Canson 88. “C’est pour la sérigraphie, mais peut-être ce que vous cherchez” me dit-il.

Mon premier essai, ci-haut. J’en aime le satiné, l’ absorption et le rendu des couleurs. Pas mal pour l’instant!

Il me reste à essayer le magnifique papier fait main par Michel Dupont…
