Another Moley Doodle with color. This time, I used gel pens that had some sparkles to it (which is why it's not as dark as the previous colors I used from the traditional ballpoint pens). This is getting to be a good pasttime while "watching" something on t.v. that doesn't need much attention.
Since watercolor class had to be cancelled, I worked more on the Sweetpea painting, too.
I did find that Twinrocker paper balling up in places and was surprised because I hadn't gone over that area much at all - the green of the pods had two little balls of paper come up on it. Okay in that spot, but if it had to be a smooth area, it would have caused problems. And I was loving the Twinrocker so maybe it has a few quirks, too. There has been some discussion of Arches and Fabriano paper have unsized areas in them from watercolor friends who were using both. I use both, too, but haven't had a problem yet with either brands. I just ordered some new Arches and Fabriano so I'm hoping I won't get a bad batch.
Many watercolorists who have been using the Arches and Fabriano are switching over to try Cheap Joe's Kilamanjaro paper.
