When the evening comes…

Awesome!!! I think I finally found MY paper! I finally opened the package with Fabriano Artistico hot-pressed (the heavy version) and started a new watercolor yesterday. What a pleasure to paint on! It almost paints itself. Or as Mink De Ville once sang: “Soft like butter, fits like a glove…” – but this was about Italian shoes. But Italian paper is great, too.

161_2016 Watercolor / Fabriano artistico hot-press 640g – ca. 76 x 56 cm / 29.9 x 22.0 in / Lukas Aquarell 1862 `When the evening comes…´

Wie schön!!! Ich glaube, ich habe endlich MEIN Papier gefunden! Ich habe endlich das Paket mit Fabriano Artistico satiniert (640g) geöffnet, dass hier seit ein paar Tagen herumstand und gestern direkt ein neues Aquarell begonnen. Was für ein Vergnügen, darauf zu malen! Fast malt es sich von selbst. Oder wie Mink DeVille einst sang: “Soft like butter, fits like a glove…” – aber das war über Italienische Schuhe. Aber das Italienische Papier ist auch großartig.

  1. Ooh now I need to try that paper out. Makes sense, hot pressed the colors flow more readily and if you are loose and fancy free in painting, it is a plus. I will buy some on my next order. So this is 300#? Beautiful colors by the way. Oh, is that waffle texture completely missing on this paper? I suppose it would be since it is hot press but I need to ask.

    1. Thanks so much, Margaret! No waffle texture, no texture at all. The texture is created by your washes only. The brush slips and slides over the sheet like dancing on ice! 🙂 I painted on the Fabriano hot press paper before but this time it is the heaviest quality available (in Europe it is 640 g – i don´t know how much it is in lb). Happy painting! 🙂

  2. I really like being able to see the stages of your paintings-thanks for taking the photos.
    And, yes! don’t you love hot press! I’ve been experimenting with other surfaces but i always come back to hot press the heavier the better although i can enjoy smooth Bristol or even Stonehenge papers.
