Wild Test of Hahnemühle’s New 100% Cotton Sketch Book

Another test of the Hahnemühle 100% Cotton Watercolour Book.
I layered Sennelier Shellac ink over the page, and painted the basic flower with gouache.  It felt toothy enough that I tried layering colored pencils over that…
I’ve never had that much luck with colored pencils over a painted surface without adding a texturizing (maybe a made up word) agent, but they took to the gouache!

It is great paper, presenting the colors far more brilliant than a normal watercolor book.
Close up details of the layering below.
