Tulips - sold

Being a watercolor paper lunatic, I was very excited to try Saunders Waterford brand. It is manufactured by St Cuthberts Mill, which has been in paper crafting business since 1700's, and is located in English county of Somerset, on the ancient land, covered with legends and mysteries related to King Arthur. Can you believe this?

As I unwrapped my brand new block of 140lb paper, I couldn't help but spend some time admiring its beautiful random surface texture. The paper has a pleasant slightly creamy color and very appealing look. I decided to paint something bright and springish on it, like tulips for example. To my pleasure, this paper handles the paint very well and doesn't fade as it dries. It also seems to be less prone to buckling (although I haven't tried wet-on-wet yet). Overall, I'm happy with this product and can't wait to continue experimenting with it.

On the coast of Northern California, there is a small town called Mendocino, which is impossible not to fall in love with. It's all about the ocean breeze, the rhythmic roar of waves, and cute houses buried in flowers. Ever since I visited that wonderful place, with its secluded sandy beaches and spectacular blooming headlands, I new I would paint a series of watercolors about it. Well, my project is started, and here are the first two paintings. 12x9 on Arches watercolor paper
