Art Tip File: Using Sandpaper

“Much of my process is deciding what to leave out instead of what to put in. I often use very fine sandpaper to remove paint, shape a passage or manipulate the pigment. The process then becomes one of refinement.” ~ T. Allen Lawson from the January/February 2012 issue of The Artist’s Magazine (Let It Snow! When the weather outside is frightful, painting snow is just delightful. William Hosner, T. Allen Lawson, Colleen Howe, Bill Teitsworth and Stephen Quiller share tips for depicting the quintessential winter landscape.).
