After midnight sketches

Last night was pretty calm and relaxed at work… and so was painting my sketches. I am so grateful I have my watercolors to bring me through the night and keep me awake. While the sketches were drying I tried to paint on Bristol cardboard… a different painting experience on such a smooth surface – but interesting. (see some results below)

Letzte Nacht war es ziemlich ruhig und entspannt bei der Arbeit… und so dann auch das Malen meiner Skizzen. Ich bin so dankbar, dass ich meine Aquarellfarben habe, um mich durch die Nacht zu bringen und mich wach zu halten. Während die Skizzen trockneten, habe ich versucht, auf Bristol-Karton zu malen… eine andere Mal-Erfahrung auf so einer glatten Oberfläche, aber durchaus interessant. (Zwei Ergebnisse siehe unten)

  1. They’re all beautiful! Looks like you had fun trying out a new paper. I like the texture in the handmade paper, but I also like the smooth vibrancy of the paintings on Bristol cardboard. Hmm. . . it’s hard to tell which I like more. Which do you prefer?

    1. Thanks so much, River! 🙂 Yes, I like to paint on any kind of paper and it is fun with the different effects. It is hard to say which I prefer, but if it is strictly about classic watercolor painting I would always choose the handmade paper that it is made for it.
