My struggle with gradients wasn't new, I always have trouble with wet on wet when using this watercolor paper, it sucks water right away, and I mean, riiight away, and then it tries to warp and I put humongous amount of water and then it lasts centuries to dry, hahaha! But, what was new was that I had an AHA! moment and started questioning... does it have sizing?. It's from Creativ Company, and I bought it at the beginning of my watercolor journey and thought it was awesome prize for 100 sheets.... yep... and they don't include any other info than 300g. Usually I blame my skills or something else, but I was sure I was doing it right yet didn't have enough time to work like in the video... and then my brain started working :D I'm happy with my findings and will experiment with sizing tutorials and see if I can make this paper work for me.
Looooved those water patterns that look like rays of light, it was easier to get smooth gradients when working small areas at a time, unlike the previous project.
