Just a little practicin'

I have a good friend who cleaned out all of her art studio and I bought all of her Arches watercolor paper for real cheap. (Remember she who dies with the most paper wins!  :)) This is Arches hot press paper which is smooth. It is a great paper for calligraphy written with nib and gouache (opaque watercolor). This was just a little doodling practice sheet just to see how this paper would take watercolor flowers.  It's different from cold press---you have to work fast! But for me--the faster the better!  zoom....zoom....
