Watercolor Wednesday with Schut-06 #Exaclair #Schut #Watercolor

Each Wednesday for 22 weeks, I'll be sharing artwork that was done on paper from a Schut Papier sampler.  I'll be giving you a little information about each of the papers.

Schut Sketchpad, Medium Fine Grain, 125 gm2/57 lbs

PH Neutral, Acid-free, ISO 9706.

The outcome of my tests:

  • Fountain Pen friendly--
    • no bleed-through 
    • no  feathering
    • indentation from nib pressure.  Show-through only if held up to light.
    • some colors seemed on the muted side because of the paper's texture
  • the linen-like texture--
    • gave a wide range of effects
    • made it harder to get dark, clean solids
    • might be rough on fabric pen tips (though I didn't use one to verify this)

 This Kente-cloth inspired piece was done with fountain pen inks 

This drawing was done with a Pentel Colorbrush in black ink
