A new painting started....

I have been working on a new watercolor on hot press paper and am finding it to be exciting to work on. I have been using cold press for years and just thought I would give the hot press a try. I am loving how vibrant the colors seem and how nice wet into wet works on this smooth paper.

Here's a close up. I still have loads of work to do and this is not something that can 
 be completed in a day. I will probably work another week on this one, so stay tuned to see the result.
Let me know what you  think. Have you used hot pressed paper?


  1. I've never heard of "hot press" paper before. It sounds to me like a culinary term!
