  1. Another nice one all wet and watery. I`d get my painting to this stage and then want to do more to it and spoil it. I really don`t know when to stop. And I`ve only painted in acrylics so far.

    1. It is difficult to know when to stop painting...you need to ask yourself : 1. does this painting convey the story I want to tell and 2. actually walk away from it for a couple of days, when you go back and look at it then you'll see what others see. Hope that helps :-)

  2. The paper has a nice effect.

    1. Yes it has, although a bit of a challenge to paint on. The trick is to have Loads of paint prepared :-)

  3. I love the rough edges of this paper. Makes the painting that much more interesting! ♥♥♥

    1. I like the edges too, in fact I've even thought about getting one of those rulers where you can tear paper to create that effect.

  4. Gorgeous work, Ann! I am not familiar with Khadi paper, I'll try to find it here, it looks very inviting to paint on.

    1. Thanks Judy. It is interesting paper and you really do need loads of water and pigment, believe me this paper soaks it up. Saying that, it is lovely to use and lends itself perfectly for some subjects. I would say, try Amazon, I know it's available through them over here so I'm guessing it would be for you too. There is also Jacksonsart.com. Hope this helps :-)
