L'amour, toujours l'amour... by maina L'amour, toujours l'amour... by maina
This is my Valentine's Day painting from me to my boyfriend. I wanted to create a custom card for him, so I came up with this little idea today. I couldn't resist painting them right away.


=============
5x7 watercolor, inks and white acrylics on watercolor hot pressed paper.

Translated very litterally is means: "Love, always love..." (which I would actually translate to simply "Love, Always") =) Hope that helps!

Wooow how nice. I have got a question though: How can you paint with inks on watercolorpaper? My watercolorpaper is very very rough and uneven, the ink pen always gets stuck and it look so crappy. Is there watercolorpaper without structure?

Thank you in advance :-)

maina Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2007
Thank you very much!

About your question: I use hotpress watercolor paper. If you look for some brands like Arches or Fabriano, they have coldpress (which is the one with texture) and hotpress (which is VERY smooth). Hotpress might be a tad pricier, but not that much really and it's really worth it! I recommend it!

I personnally buy the Fabriano one, not because its better than the Arches, but because it's cheaper. Both are of great archival quality so you are sure that it's good paper.

I hope that helps! If you have more questions, feel free to ask! =)
