now that you mention it, you’re right, color does lift more easily. I have to get used to how the color MOVES on the paper and I’m using a little too much water so I have to adjust that too.December 26, 2017 at 10:39 am
Yeah, in some ways the color lifts almost too easily. It can be difficult to glaze until you get the right water ratio because you’ll lift color away instead of adding more.December 26, 2017 at 11:46 pm
glad to hear it wasn’t just me, I was thinking that since I’d been doing so many watercolor PENCIL drawings and almost no paintings that when I went back I’d forgotten what to do!! At least I know now it’s not me, I just have to learn how to use this paper. Thanks sandra, I feel better now!January 12, 2018 at 1:24 pm
I think I am a fan-gurl of these watercolor books. Besides the paper, I also love the little bit bigger A5 size — just a touch, but so nicely proportioned! I can paint and write without crowding!January 12, 2018 at 1:37 pm
I’ve eager to work in my A4 size, but the daily postcard paintings have been taking up most of my painting time. I do love the Hahnemühle watercolor postcards, but I think I’m going to start cutting down some of my other papers to work on. I don’t want to the point where I’m so used to the way those postcards work that I have difficulty on other paper, lol.January 21, 2018 at 2:40 pm
Good idea Sandra. It’s so easy to get used to one way and find skills slip a bit in other areas. I hate it when that happens. I really don’t like being unhappy with the art I make, it makes me grumpy!January 21, 2018 at 4:25 pm
Same here. Although, sometimes I’m grumpy going in so nothing I do makes me happy.
