Lovely work Arto! I discovered your blog recently and I'm really loving it.
What do you treat your paper with before painting on it? assuming you do use primer on it.

Thank you Bernie! Canson Figueras is a special paper designed for oil painting. No need to prime it. It's also got a texture that looks like canvas. I bought a pad for testing, and so far I like it.

A beautiful subject...she's adorable and I love the background as well. Do you frame under glass since its a pad?

Thank you hmuxo! I haven't tried it yet, but I guess the painting could be fastened on a panel and then framed without glass.
