I have painted at this spot once before but with pastels and I have fished here a few times as well.
Wow…..I love Saunders! I have painted several times before but I think it really hit me how much I love this paper, especially with granulating colors. It is pure magic.
By the time I was almost finished with my fourth painting, I was feeling rain drops and I was so involved with painting that I didn’t realize that it had quickly clouded up and was now threatening to get serious. I decided to wrap it up.
- Paint with different papers, change it up often, it is fun and you’ll discover your favorite kind of paper, Saunders and Fabriano are my favorites to date.
- Pave your way through a painting, don’t allow the fear of the unknown to direct your hand, it all works out better if you just relax and follow your brush and paint.
- Keep at it, watercolor is demanding, yes but it will teach you a few lessons on how to let go and stop trying to control every aspect of this wonderful medium.
- Granulating paints are fun! Give them a try.
