Matt, Lustre, Or Gloss For Landscapes?

Postby jonathan » Tue Sep 08, 2009 10:49 am

Different paper types seem to lend themselves to different applications and subjects, so I was wondering what you use for landscapes - matt, lustre or gloss. Any reccomendations for lower-priced papers would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried Somerset Velvet Enhanced? It`s a lovely paper with a real fine art feel (and made in the U.K., in Somerset.......possibly important in these troubled times). Treated correctly it will give results close to the subtlety and emotional imapct of a (monochrome) Platinum print...... plus really fine colour reproduction and a long tonal range. Also, some of the D-max mentioned above can be regained by judicious use of one of the proprietry sprays, although it isn`t strictly necessary since there is rarely a true black in nature, despite what the pundits might say. As an artist, the use of black pigment seldom happens in a painting!
