Palmer Feed Mill

Artist: Tim Oliver, United States
Artist Statement: While primarily a plein air watercolorist, I’m passionate about sketching in pencil as well as pen and ink. Rural landscapes of my native West Texas tend to be the primary source of inspiration in my work. I love to sketch and paint agricultural and industrial subjects as well. I sketched this feed mill (Palmer Feed and Supply, San Angelo, TX) in my Stillman & Birn Alpha 9×12 wire bound sketchbook. I tend to work with heavy watercolor washes and the Alpha holds up extremely well! I also currently use a Beta Hard Bound 5.5×8.5. Its compact size is very handy and I love the heavy weight paper! The quality of the paper is exceptional and it accepts ink and watercolor extremely well.

MEDIA: Ink and watercolor
SURFACE: Alpha Series – Heavyweight – 150 gsm – White – Medium Grain Finish
