I just had to try some simple landscape painting exercises to see how my new set of paint will work on new paper. If you paint with watercolors, you know how different results can be achieved when you use different paper or pigments. This time I have rough surface 96lb paper. Lifting technique doesn’t work well on this paper. I wouldn’t use it for my final artwork, but it is good enough for quick sketches or even miniature paintings as Art cards. Ideas for the sketches were offered by one of many free lessons you can find in internet (I hope I will locate it again to be able to give a credit to the author). I find it interesting to see how other artists teach and share their tips.
