I needed to order Pastel Paper for the oil pastel illustrations. The paper I was using seemed a little dark for the for landscapes. Any paper showing in the sky was too dark and light colors shown the dark paper color through. The new lighter color paper on top is exposed on the corners. I was concerned that changing paper color might not match what I have already done. That’s why I did this test, in soft pastel I couldn’t change paper color. This test proves I can change the color of the paper and still have consistency. I like the lighter paper better. I always work in the first layer into the paper or the color paper would show more.
