Since I don't have ink, I used 3 values of Payne's Gray and I used a sketchbook paper, so it rippled a little. . . . but I liked this one better. I did use liquid color instead of tablets. I feel like it has a smoother appearance and less "water marks". The color landscape I used windsor newton tablets on cold press watercolor paper, but I feel like it's quality is not as good. Hoping you can give me some suggestions. Do you think it's the paint? paper? maybe I'm not loading enough color from the tablets?
