Now I am convinced watercolors have a place in my art cabinet. They ARE great for working in art journals and will probably do their main job there inside. Right now, I just can’t see painting and framing a watercolor nor using it as a journal cover since the completed work can lifted with more water!
Next up? I’ll probably make myself a new watercolor journal using up paper originally bought for acrylics. Not sure why I have an 18” x 24” block of rough watercolor paper—maybe I was inexperienced at the time with the difference between cold-press and hot press and how each affected the way I used acrylics. I want to see how using 100% cotton paper allows for more experiments. Maybe I’ll make a sampler with various other watercolor papers on hand.
