I was goofing off trying out some free paper samples I got. This is watercolor and colored pencil on 300 lb. Arches Cold Press watercolor paper. I really liked the thickness of rough texture of this paper.

You did really well with the watercolor/colored pencil on that paper. The textural effect is wonderful throughout the piece!!! :clap:

Very nice! This would make a great Christmas card.

If you love the rough texture, have you ever tried the 'rough' watercolour paper? (I have a sheet of handmade paper that's been sitting in my paper drawer for years and the texture is to die for! I'd forgotten about it until now. :D )

Oh, this makes me excited to think of the holidays coming soon. Wish we could see some snow down here in hurricane land though. Nice watercolor. :)

Tamara, this is charming! What a great way to use paper samples. I agree that the texture of the paper truly helps your cause with this painting.
