Sunlight Breaking Through
Once again, I am doing a watercolor painting using a special type of mineral paper. This is a "tree-friendly" paper, which means that no trees were destroyed in order to make it. It is made using stones (Calcium Carbonate) ground very fine and mixed with a small amount of plastic binder.
I just love the way the paint responds to this paper. The paint doesn't absorb into the paper as it does with regular watercolor paper. But rather, this paper allows the paint to float on the surface and enables the paint to mingle and move, creating beautiful color blends and surprising effects.
