I guessed right on how to stretch the lighter weight watercolor paper.
Aw, no painting today cause I apparently don’t know how to stretch paper properly…. This is a lighter weight Arches paper and it seems to do this when it dries overnight. My theory is the edges of the paper are too wet and they are still wet by the time to adhesive on the tape has dried, so it doesn’t adhere. So I think I need to try blotting the edges with paper towel before I apply the tape. (Edit to add: this is the tape in question: link. It seems to work well for heavier papers.
Anyone have any ideas?
Some faces, before & after. The paper in the sketchbook I’ve been using lately is rougher than usual, so my pencils have been looking sort of soft. It takes ink like a champ, though.
more sloppy paintin’, kept some layers this time for the anon who asked about my process
