    @jill – Thanks for the info 🙂 Didn’t know the sizing can deteriorate with time… That explains why some really old maybe 12 ~ 13-year-old paper I have re-found in my stock was acting weird.

    I have brought my paper  2 ~ 3 months ago and the other sheet of paper I have used have seemed ok for now, done a little beating to one without my mop brush just to try and except the paper have pilling a little because of the over-working, the paint has never passed to the other side.

    @sandra-strait – It’s was a wash I was trying to do when the spots had appeared, I forget to mention it… I am really sorry.

    I usually use round brush, and even I have a bad habit of using too much water with them so I have probably really over wetted the paper with the mop. I really need to use a towel to dry a little my brush lol.

    @kate-powell – Lovely painting 🙂 I don’t use Arches, but yeah, I find absorbent paper difficult too. The fact I have used mainly really cheap ”student” grade and student grade paper don’t really help me.

    Thanks for all the info, Sandra! 🙂 I think I have added too much water… I have used my big mop brush which I have used maybe two times and I probably got a ”little” carried away with it lol and I have remembered that I have done some swatching on the same paper with student and professional quality and the same blue (Ultramarine Deep – Sennelier) and none of the color or the blue didn’t fade nor spot like in the picture.

    I will try tomorrow to paint again on it, just to be sure the painting is totally dry… And have a less heavy hand with water lol.

    Thanks so much again for the info and the help, Sandra!

    True, I have never been disappointed with a Mario game. I have never really played a sports game of Mario… Except for Mario Golf on the Nintendo 64 (That I still find weird even today for some reason lol) But Mario Tennis seems really fun, I will probably give it a try someday.

    Hehe, I am sure you will get a chance to play with him. There will be Super Mario Party who will go out in October and Super Smash Bros Ultimate in December if you want to grab him on some others multiplayer games later this year too.

    @sandra-strait Thanks 🙂 Yes I will share more. I have already some idea, not sure how it will turn out but I will still try it.

    @doodlewash Hehe, thanks 🙂 And yup, big yay for video games! 😀 I totally understand for the Nintendo Switch lol, when my friend got is one after not even three months after the console got lunched I was always poking him for playing with it… I only win two times and for a really short time of playing lol. Finally got mine last year with only Zelda: Breath of the Wild for now… Almost finished the game but I am stretching it in waiting for the new Super Smash Bros in December or Metroid Prime 4 maybe the next year… And I need to poke my friend again for is Mario Odysee lol.

    @rod-fletcher Thanks for the welcome 🙂

    After one year of watching silently the forum and the website. I think it’s time that I introduce myself lol.

    I am Mélissa, I live at Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Québec a town at like 30 ~ 35 minutes of Montréal. I am french with a really rusted english, so I am really sorry for the grammar fault I can make or weird phrasing.

    I really love video games, making/sewing plushies, painting, drawing, animals, nature and I am really shy (sometimes it’s really crippling) but I am working on it 🙂

    I am a beginner in watercolor which I found to really love when I have taken a full-time art class/project the last years. Still learning some of the bases and all, the long pauses I have taken from the last year World Watercolor Month (Mainly because of my shyness and all) Didn’t help with the improvement I have made, but I am really decided to not stop this time.

    I think it’s all… And I am really happy to be part of this wonderful and fun community that Charlie create… Even if I don’t talk often lol.
