Hi friends! Today I want to share a quick little painting I created a couple of months ago.
I love the way the paint reacts on the handmade paper. The key to success with working on this paper is to go with the flow and let the paper and paint behave how they want. Watch the video and paint along in real-time:)
Supplies I used:
- Shizen Handmade watercolor paper #140 (300gsm) *Tear down to size for deckle edges
- Yarka Watercolor in Tubes
- 3/4″ Princeton Neptune (or other juicy brush for spattering paper)
- #6 round synthetic watercolor brush
