New paper… old brush…

I’m testing watercolour papers for a (charity) project I am going organising for the new year which will involve lots of different artists. I want to send them a piece of paper (maybe) and so am trying some out. This particular paper is very like Khadi paper but is Jackson’s Eco paper. Very rough – look at the scan! Quite a white paper and heavy, takes water well without buckling. I really like it.

Next will be some Sanders Waterford – which when I look at it strikes me as very flat now!

Anyone got a favourite watercolour paper. I find it does make a huge different to the end result.

New paper… new brush….

Bought (probably rather too many) some sheets of very rough paper as an experiment…¬†Couldn’t get a straight line but I suspect my washes were too thin. Next time try thicker…

Lovely squirrel brush though.

30 in 30 day something…

Totally lost the impetus on this 30 in 30 too many other things to keep me busy and not painting. Oh well! The idea was there…

Here is a painting of a river.

Arches paper… nicer to paint on, nicer to scan!

Missing days due to work and visiting the in-laws may be made up later….
