Two Rivers triptychPosted: October 3, 2015
Last week I received a special gift — a sample pack of cotton/linen Two Rivers watercolour paper (available at Jackson’s in the UK). Lovely gift it was. But what to paint on it? It took a bit of time but it finally came to me. The three panels of paper are just a little too small for painting on individually, so I taped them together and painted on them all at once. What a perfect way to compare surfaces. On the left is the thinnest (140 lb NOT), on the right is 200 lb NOT, and the middle piece is the thickest beauty — the 300 lb NOT. Gorgeous paper, wonderful for granulating colours and amazing for lifting because of the “hard sizing”. If you are interested in trying it out, have a look at the sample pack on the Jackson’s website.
