Hilary’s gardenPosted: May 6, 2015
It’s a near perfect day for sketching outside and the light in my neighbour’s yard was just right for painting some spring greens. I sketched on Canson Moulin du Roy today. It’s quite an absorbent paper — not my favourite to be honest — but I have lots of little sheets leftover from a recent project so I’m trying to use them up. It seems that no matter how much water I have on the brush it dries more quickly than I expect. I bought it originally for ink and wash sketches because it’s smooth enough for the pen line, but every time I use it with pencil and watercolour I’m left a little bit frustrated with the way it performs.
