Experimenting with this paper

I actually bought it to use for drawing and painting combined. It’s wonderful to draw on but when I started painting I noticed that it absorbed the paint a lot more than my rougher paper. That wasn’t what I wanted at all.. I’ve never bothered to buy hot pressed paper before now, so it might just be that way that it is ? I don’t know! I don’t like the way it behaves with paint.. But this was what my watercolor experiment turned into to. So all is not lost I suppose.


This painted today. It’s been an awful day with aches and all those other fun things that come with this chronic illness. Luckily Cecil at Nightvale Radio made the day a bit better, and I got this done, not bad at all.
