Hahnemühle Post Cards, 6

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.


Layers of waterproof inks begin most postcards now.
Amazingly these cards take a huge amount of water.  Indian Paintbrush.

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.
