  4. Hi Brooke, may I ask which paper you use for your watercolor paintings? Yours seems pretty smooth in this picture and I only have used pretty grainy one till now.
    I can only repeat what the others already said: Very sweet and clean and I love the plants and flowers!!

    1. Hi Lisa! I use Arches, 140 pound, hot press, watercolor paper. Before I paint I stretch the paper (soak it in water and then staple it to a board). Thank you so much for your nice comment! :)

    2. Thank you very much for your reply! I've seen this paper before, I might have to check where it is available in Germany.
      Thanks for the tip with the water too - I used tape to stick it on a wooden board but the tape went off by itself again. It's all about the right combination of materials I guess :)

    3. I order my paper from Dick Blick, ( http://www.dickblick.com/ ). I'm not sure if they ship to Germany, but maybe it's worth looking into? :)

    4. Thanks for the link! I also found some shops in Germany but it's a little too expensive there :/
      I ordered paper from Hahnemühle again - Hahnemühle Britannia (matt) -which I had used before. I hope it will be smooth enough.
      I'll look forward to seeing more from you this year! :)
