Ugly Sweater

I tried smooth bristol paper instead of water colour paper today.

The smooth surface made the drafting portion much much easier. The downside is the paper doesn't soak up as much water as the water colour paper so I had to use less water which made blending and layering tougher and make mistakes more visible. Maybe it's better suited to use with bit of acrylic. I'll study Bill Presing's method and try that out next time.
