Today I had two questions for myself:
Which paper do I prefer for dip pen/ink & watercolor wash, and
Do I like to sketch first then paint (my usual method) or paint first then sketch (never tried it)?
So I tried both methods and two kinds of paper. The first one is Daler-Rowney hot press WC paper. The second is Borden & Riley Paris Paper for pens which is new to me, someone on this forum suggested it. This was maybe 1 hour all total if that much, I don't really know. I was sitting outdoors enjoying my life.
The verdict: Wow what a different sketch it is when I reverse the procedure! Wasn't trying to make them the same. I was using a fairly stiff nib and WN sepia ink. The pen kept clogging with paper bits (? I guess) on the Paris Paper, then it buckled with the watercolor. I definitely prefer the WC paper when using both methods together.
