Nice colors Jane. I love working on hot-pressed paper and use it for most of my paintings. I like the way the color sits on top of the paper instead of soaking in - and the colors are more vibrant.

Makes me think about Lappland. Lovely!

Candy ha detto...

Jane, this is a very soothing little watercolor.

Judy ha detto...

Beautiful, Jane! I wonder how you use the palette knife, do you use undiluted paints?

thanks jean ...i really like hot press too ...all the best with your tutoring /courses

hi catharina the snow has arrived late this year ! ...mountain tops are covered finally ...we are surrounded by beautiful views here ...thank you for looking

thank you candy

hi judy glad you like it a very quick wash... for this wash i wet the paper first and used paint straight from the tube ...wet in wet ....lost quite a few of the reserved whites here ... lots of scope with marks ...you can scrape off and lift.
