I've been hooked on watercolor and charcoal lately. Today is a watercolor day!! I have been cutting down my 140# cold press into small 5x7 to practice. Today while I was watching a watercolor video on You Tube, I pulled out a 3.5x7, #50 sketch pad. It was perfect to take some notes and to practice some of the strokes, techniques, etc. I may look for a heavier paper but this works great and I have all my practice in one spot. It's already easy to know, what videos I've watched and follow my progress as I try different techniques. It's also inspired me to pick up some watercolor paper note cards and start doing some original cards. They only take a few minutes for a simple one and it's a nice touch that makes the card more personal.
