  •   schoolhousedoodles So bright & beautiful! 2w
  •   pigmentandparchment What are you painting on? I have yet to splurge on a watercolor paper sketchbook $$ I just use regular pads and have drawers of loose leaf paintings everywhere!!! Hahha I may need a new system. 2w
  •   madelinetrait @pigmentandparchment actually it is not special watercolor just multi-purpose but a good sketchbook is key. If you figure out a good system, let me know. 2w
  •   pigmentandparchment Ya I've tried those that are multi purpose thick paper- they still are no good for watercolor. Unless you use the tiniest amount of water but then you're missing the point one of these days I it's need to invest in the fancy watercolor sketchbooks like a big girl and be done with it haha! Storing all these watercolor clippings in plastic sleeves in drawers that are filling up to quickly isn't going to work forever. I need an archiver. 2w
