Waste Not, Want Not

As I’m done with Moleskine sketchbooks, I started hunting for an alternative and I found a couple of books in my house. I have no idea what one of them is, so I tested the paper by just layering random watercolour washes in various strengths.

I quite liked the paper, but then I had wasted a page. So I decided to do today’s portrait over the top of my random colours.

Actually, I kind of like it 🙂

      I don’t like the paper anymore – it just doesn’t work for the way I paint. The water sits on the surface and I always end up with muddy colours. I’m not sure what I’ll use – that’s why I’m experimenting 🙂
