WATERCOLOR BLOCKS - COLDPRESS, ROUGH AND HOTPRESS






I have purchased a few watercolor blocks in the past.  They are mostly Arches brand, but some Lanaquarelle, too.  I'm going to get them out and paint on them - what's the use of having things if you never use them?








What am I going to paint on them?  Mostly birds.






Happy December!

Oh Rhonda - birds sound like the perfect subject. You are inspiring me to pull out some of my hidden away art treasures. Take care and have a delightful start to December. Hugs!

I am looking forward to seeing your paintings on the watercolour blocks. I have only been painting in watercolour for a couple of years but have not seen these blocks in the art shops here.

I haven't tried the ones at the top, see them in stores but not surer of the quality so never grab them

Yes, whenever I feel uninspired, I return to birds and they always help :). Using the various blocks will give me some play time, too, Debbie.

Rosemary, all of the blocks are good quality artist paper, just in a different form - good for taking to a class or out in the field to save space.

Jennifer Rose, I'm lucky to have everything online - and some in craft/art stores but they are always more expensive in a brick-and-mortar shop than online - especially with all the sellers having holiday sales right now online.
