I used a hot press, handmade paper from an Indiana Artisan in Brookston, Indiana, TwinRocker.com. I recommend ordering their three sheets sampler of 8" x 10" white watercolor paper, one of each surface: cold press, hot press and rough. Watercolor Sampler Set is $12.50 for $12.50 plus shipping and handling. Working on this handmade watercolor paper was a different painting experience. Lifting pigment was a little easier, but then the surface became a little slicker.
To tell you the truth this painting was done last Saturday afternoon while I was at our cabin in northern Wisconsin. This plein air painting was done with the flies, a few mosquitoes, and pleasant wind. I had been painting the last few water paintings from photos, and I felt I needed to go out and study the movement of water in person.
This was a rapid scene with rocks and turbulent water in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. There had been abundant rain in the last month. I intended to do a quick study of how the water flows and moves around the rocks. This watercolor study was achieved in approximately 30 minutes of painting. My intent was to kept the palette simple because I felt I could concentrate on the subject matter without getting involved with too much – just focusing on the value.
