Another Portrait on Canson Heritage Watercolor Paper

One thing I found that I really liked with Canson Heritage watercolor paper was the way a wide range of pens worked beautifully on its surface. (I was testing the hot press surface.) In this portrait I used a fountain pen filled with Platinum Carbon Black and two Sakura Pigma Professional brush pens with solid […]

Another Peek at Canson Heritage Watercolor Paper

  I have already given my thoughts and recommendations about this paper and you can find them under “Canson Heritage” using the blog’s search engine or category list.

Looking at Canson Heritage Watercolor Paper

This past fall I purchased a block of 140 lb. hot press Canson Heritage Watercolor paper. It is a 100 percent cotton paper with vegetable sizing. (Yep, I am not happy about the sizing, but there you have it.) Since then I’ve been working on it to complete a project. I haven’t posted sketches from […]

Greens, Grays, and Canson Heritage Watercolor Paper

Tuesday I met up with a couple artist friends for lunch and afterwards we trekked across the street to Wet Paint, each with some art supply on our list. For me I was picking up some white gouache to test.  Funny how that goes, I ended up sorting my paints when I got home and […]
