Acrylic on heavy Canson paper.
9,45" x 11,81" / 24 cm x 30,7 cm, 2014.

It's the first time that I've tried Canson watercolourpaper.
Although I normally don't like rough surfaces, I loved painting on it!
If I paint on Rives BFK or Arches hotpress paper, the paper absorbs so quickly, that I don't have enough time to blend it. Maybe that's a good thing for watercolour artists, but for me it's kind of annoying...
I love to blend and just take my time. I know that painting wet in wet would be a solution, but I just want to paint without have to think about if my paper is still wet enough.
With Canson everything went so easy, it felt like a relief.
