Watercolour on light watercolour paper
A friend gave me some watercolour paper that had belonged to his wife, but did not know the brand or weight of the paper. I am guessing it is 90 lb. paper, but I am not sure. It is very light in weight and also very soft. I decided to paint a simple floral using the negative painting method which employs a fair amount of water. It took the pigment and water very well and dried nice and flat. Lifting, however, would not be an option. The surface would pill very easily. I do like the results and will experiment further. I believe his wife used it to back her rice paper paintings before framing.
