der weiss nicht was er will :-)
Hello ladies.. i am certainly ready for some better weather.. even if it is a little Spring shower :-)
I would like to say a bit more about the coloring today on my card. When i went the other day to my local Art Supply store i had a guy who really knew a lot about water coloring and he explained a little bit about the different papers. So, of course i went home with 2 different styles of papers. All by Arches – i love usually Fabriano but the extra white was sold out, i went with 300 gr one hot press and one cold press.
The sells person told me that the cold press is much easier to color in because of the bigger pores of the paper. The color can be moved with the brush a little easier and can be re-wetted (is that a word?) to fix little mistakes vs.. the hot press since the surface is so smooth is not as easy for beginners to color with.
After i came home – this was my first image i colored in with my ink refills'. I am actually pretty happy with it considering it was one of first images after 1.5 years with my Copics. The coloring is really a bit easier with the cold press, however i find it very hard to get a nice crisp image with my Stazon pad to the paper due to the bumpy surface.
