After years of trying the Ron Ranson technique with the Hake brush, finally, I understand how important the paper is to achieve this particular technique. Not that I will do many of my paintings like this, but it works. So therefore, I will do a few watercolor studies in my folded journal while I wait to order the proper paper.
Blydenburg Park watercolor
This little 5x7 watercolor study was done in 2012, I was fascinated with the reflections in the water.
