Bought the rough paper for the first time.Usually I prefer NOT or Cold Pressed.
First painting was a failure as I tried to paint in the same way as I did on a NOT. Disheartened at first, I tried to loosen up a bit more and painted another one.The bottom one. All wet-in -wet and fresh; no going back and correcting.The result was not bad and today I tried one more- the painting on the top is the one- and I like the freshness of it.
Don't use rough paper if you like small details.It works best with wet in wet technique where you do not care about details and the all that matters is the final impact.
