    You have done some really beautiful work here…I was looking through your portfolio and noticed you used watercolor canvas…I’ve never heard of that it like a board.? Margaret Harris, Canada
  • Hi Margaret, I think watercolour canvas has been around for six of seven years, it is made by Fredrix. It is a completely different support for watercolours to other bases – it allows for more lifting off and reworking, but at the same time you have to have a very light hand when doing washes and adding extra colour or the underneath layers easily lift off. I loved working on it, especially for miniatures – I just don’t like the grainy effect when it is reproduced, meaning those paintings are not ideal for prints.
