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.

Jane, Whoa, thanks so much your role in my DD.
I wish I could be successful at suggesting, although I've
only done it once, I probably shouldn't give up. I've had a
friend and supporter for my 4 years on DArt, Katie and
I suggested one of her expert quilts. Thought you might
be so kind as to have a look.
THANKS again...richardRainbow Star Explosion by kbhollo
