Old Degas, New Tricks.

The plan was to paint this Degas using pastels. Instead of pastel paper, I used fine sandpaper. I was using oil paint for the undertone but, the oil paint on the sandpaper was so amazing the way it "melted" into the sandpaper allowing me to paint layer upon layer of oils that I finished the piece without even getting to the pastels. I have no idea how archival this process is but, I can't wait to try it again.
