Niton Undercliff, Isle of Wight

Still working with watercolour at the moment, and trying to get the Fabriano 140lb paper to work for me.  Fact is, I need a heavier weight.  The only way I can make this paper work at all is wet in wet, and stretched with gummed tape to prevent it buckling.

Bockingford paper, in fact most 140lb papers, buckles - but I've never known a paper to turn into corrugations as reliably as this one.

However, just goes to show I should spend more on paper, and hang the electricity bill....

This one is Early Morning, Niton Undercliff.  Threatening clouds, light gleaming through, a couple of yachtsmen about to lose their breakfasts...
