There’s been so much rain lately, followed by intermittent mugginess and flood watches, that some plein air-type painting has had to be done inside. With plenty of models done in the open air to go by, I recently recreated some familiar scenes and, in the process, tried out watercolors on the Langton Prestige watercolor paper made in the UK by Daler Rowney.
My impression of this paper is that the watercolors do stay moist longer and naturally exhibit a more transparent sheen than is typical on Arches paper. I had underestimated this paper originally when I bought it nearly 10 months ago. For different effects, trying various papers is fun.
