    • That’s an awesome painting. I like the colors!

      • Thank you. I tried not to overwork the paper too much. I didn’t know that was a thing until I noticed that some fibers were clumping. Maybe it’s the cold press?

        • As usual there could be several reasons for the problem. There isn’t a standard when it comes to Cold Press/Hot Press etc. Some brands are more sturdy than others-so it might be the paper in question. The more water you use, the more likely you can cause ‘pilling’ – that clumping of fibers. If you are using a stiff brush, it is more likely to cause damage. Or it could be technique, and you are overworking more than you realize. If you keep adding wet paint to a wet area, even if you aren’t scrubbing at it, you can soak the fibers to the point where the slightest touch will cause pilling.

    • Yum. Shrimp bisque. Looks good!

      • Thanks, I LOVE shrimp bisque. Unfortunately, members of my family don’t so I order it whenever we go out 🙂

    • This is awesome! And yum!!
