Red River Paper Pro Monday – Bert Monroy
Job: Digital photo-realist artist
Favorite Red River Paper: Premium Matte papers
Printer: Epson Pro Printers
While writing my latest book, Photoshop Studio with Bert Monroy: Digital Painting, it was crucial to see how colors worked together on a spread. Proofing each spread on Red River papers was vital to the success of the book. I used one of the Red River papers that closely matched the white and finish of the final paper that the book would end up being printed on.I went through a lot of ink and paper but the result is a book that captures the intense colors of my original works.
