Call for Questions

Hamlet considers a recently exhumed Yorick
Once again, I'm putting out the call for questions from readers.  If you have any questions about plein air painting or topics you'd like see covered here, let me know!  I've been teaching workshops for over ten years and blogging about plein air painting since 2005, so this is your chance to tap my brain.  And if I don't know the answer, I'll do some digging.

You can either e-mail me or leave a comment to this post.

I don't guarantee I'll answer every question right away, but I'll put your question on my list and get to it as soon as I can.  I'd like to make this blog as helpful as possible, and I appreciate your help!

Do you use gloves when you paint with pastels?

Michael Chesley Johnson said...

Hi Felicia - No, I don't. The reason being that I use fairly small pieces of pastel, and the tips of the glove are forever getting between the paper and the pastel. Instead, I try to remember to use something like Gloves in a Bottle. Good question! I know some pastels who do use gloves, however. I use nitrile gloves for oil painting, rather than latex.
