Today I made a fantastic discovery.
I always thought I was a mediocre watercolorist. Always used cold pressed or hot-pressed watercolor papers and hated my results. Today, I used some scrap illustration board (I have lots of it left over what with the illustrations I am doing these days.). The results were very good, considering the artist wielding the brush. The painting is a miniature still life, about 3 x 4 and I will post a photo shortly.
