The top painting is on Arches 140 lb. watercolor paper and the paints really did beautifully – especially the walnut one I made which was smooth like butter and very, very rich which is why I used it alone in the very zen-like second painting. Done in the Sumi-e style, it is simply walnut paint on the handcrafted pampas grass paper I made.
Hope you enjoyed todays lesson. = )
