Watercolor paper Guide by jane-beata
Watercolor paper Guide
Many people have been asking about watercolor paper lately and I have realized how important for every beginner is to learn how to chose, because picking the wrong watercolor paper might ruin your learning efforts. This is my attempt to write a comprehensive guide containing the most basic facts about watercolor paper, hoping this will help some of you.

:frail: Besides that, I want to say Thank you, DeviantArt , for being SO awesome and posting two of my watercolor eye tutorials on their official :facebook: page, along with the unique experience of Q&A yesterday evening. I really felt the kind of appreciation I wish for everyone's hard work to meet. ❤


With any questions, don't hesitate to comment or note me :)

sources: Painging, How to draw and paint, Painting/Drawing
brands of paper: W&N, Fabriano, Canson, Hahnemuhle

Watercolor eye study by jane-beata
Watercolor eye study
Eye study made with watercolor and pen on 250g cold-pressed paper, original is small ( 15 x 21 cm / 5.9 x 8.3 ") and was gifted to my friend before it was featured as a DD (:

Credits: Huge part of my watercolor practice and technique learning lies within very helpful videos of agnes-cecile on YouTube, I am very grateful that there are artists like her who teach people all around the world this way :heart:

A Daily Deviation! Big thanks to Natalia-Luz, ruby604 and lucid-light for suggesting and to SRaffa for featuring :heart: and of course for all the :+fav:, comments, appreciation.

Hi Jane, I have just been away for a couple of days and when I get back there is a little supprise for me in the way of a DD. Thank you, any exposure is good at the moment, sales are way to hard and living of art is not easy so it is great to get any help we can. Thanks for the approval.…
