this was my attempt to do a strata painting in watercolor - though i am not sure what i think of it. i may have gone overboard w/ the pen and ink! mostly i just wanted to play because i have this watercolor tablet that is 6 x 18" - such an interesting size. the paper is strathmore coldpress 140lbs. not my favorite but not too bad. i had been using arches so much i needed to adjust back to using strathmore and cotman. i am just sort of experimenting with bits and bobs of paper i had hoarded. a friend gave me 3 lovely sheets of arches and fabriano and i forget the 3rd...but i have not cut those down yet.
