Rising Creek

purchase here
I'm trying a new handmade watercolor paper today - Shizen 100% cotton rag.  Shopping at Artists and Craftsman supply store with my award card from the Celebration show, I nearly bought out these papers in almost every size!  I've not used them until now, but the look and feel convinced me. The fine tip India ink seems to glide over the surface, but my fountain pen performs as usual, feeling very natural.  And this may have been my first hot press paper ever!  Painting number 2557 in 2557 days. 


  1. Beautiful painting. Really hard to read the writing as it fades into the background. x

  2. I was wondering what paper you were using. This is lovely.
