Woods of Magic

I recently had the opportunity to paint on a piece of handmade Shizen paper which is very textured. I of course painted a landscape with trees! The paper accepts the paint like a dream and the texture really adds to the watercolor. I spattered with acrylic inks and used some iridescent ink as well in the finish. Painting on this piece prompted me to buy some more handmade paper and I currently have several washes waiting to be revisited and finished. The paint just rolls on this kind of paper and the texture is awesome!
Thanks to Ketty for this opportunity!!!!
"Woods of Dreams" • Original watercolor on handmade Shizen paper • 9" x 12"
Because this is handmade paper the 9" x 12" size isn't consistent. The top is a little narrower. All of the edges are deckle edges.
