Hi All

Bought new Cotman's watercolour paper today and I love it ... so much easier to paint on than my old stuff  :)

This is my first try with a landscape.

Nice painting, Anita!   :clap: :clap: :clap:

I'm glad you found the watercolor paper that works well for you.

 :clap:   :clap:  Well done Anita.   :clap:  Absolutely love your sky, and great work on the reflections. Very nice painting. Most of my paintings have been done on a Cotman block and I quite like it as well. Still have a few varieties of paper to try out, but I did enjoy working on the Cotman. Well done.   O0
Cheers, Val
