Wow!! amazing work.. this inspires me to get inspired!! is your sketbook special paper for watercolour, or any paper would do? as I'm planning to try on watercolours soon but the fact that I don't have watercolour specific paper yet puts me off it a bit for the moment being.
Hey thanks My sketchbook isn't watercolor paper but it's somehow thick enough so i can use watercolors. But you always have to try it out, i've had paper the same size that deformed totally. Watercolor paper is way better of course because it stays flat, but if you just want to give it a try every paper that's a bit thicker should work.
cool!! Thanks so much for your quick reply!! I tried on cardboard the other day, it bends a bit but looks flat when it's dry... but they colour look like too light, and it was a dark green cardboard, but that I think it's consequence to crap and very cheap watercolours... any make in particular you could recommend for a beginner?
Use white paper. Watercolors, more than any other colors, need a white background. I'm using colors from "Royal Talens" and "Lukas" in standard quality. Really affordable. These are the only colors i have experience with. (started using watercolors 6 month ago, so i'm still a beginner myself )
Oh wow...6 months ago, what you do is awesome and well I still have some hope!! Oh well... I had tons of dark cardboard to paint on to do the first crap stuff ... but yes, of course it would be more difficult to paint on that, however I wanted to make an experiment and do something original... as haven't seen watercolours in dark backgrounds! But maybe with better quality materials it doesn't look as cheap..
Ohh thanks for the names, I am determined to go and buy some proper watercolours today, so I'll have yours in mind, not sure if they'll sell those makes in UK.. but if I see them I'll buy those... if within my budget!
