Hi!

And I used Van Gog watercolor in tubes.
I`ve never compared paper )))


Experiment 1
All types of paper react well with water and watercolor. Paper gradually absorbs water. I didn't notice much difference between the sheets of paper.

Experiment 2
It was intresting. I`ve never think that after 5 second second (yellow) color influence to first (red). But also I noticed that max smooth blending have Japanese paper.

Experiment 3
 I don`t like effects on japanese paper and I really like blending two colors on Canson 185 g

Experiment 4
I really like this experiment. It gives such beautiful granulation effects, so my favorites are japanese paper and Canson 185 g. But if  I want smooth spread of color i prefer Canson 300 g.

Last experiment is my fault. I wanted to see beatiful flowers. And I tryed do it several times, but my blossoms hadn`t bloomed.
