I had no idea when I began playing with the Hahnemühle Post Cards
that I would love them so much! Trading postcards, sending an actual watercolor,
and now, gifting them to Patreons! Now I am comfortable with the ribbed rough paper, and use it to add to the textural quality of the finished images.
Most of these are done late at night when I can’t sleep,
but this group was created on a day off. Pussy-willows.
I clip the postcards to a rigid surface to make them lay flat when painting!
A single rose bud.
These inks feathered, no fault to the cards… some inks feather!
In the end I made it work for me.
