Watercolour paper

Wooden house with boat, a waterway near Belem, Para, Brazil

I accidentally used a sheet of my drawing paper to paint a couple of pictures. The picture above shows how the paint was absorbed quickly in the area of the background acai palm trees.

The paint was drying very quickly – almost as it hit the paper – since the atmosphere where I paint is hot and dry.

It is possible to soak the paper to maintain a damp surface but that then creates other problems.

I made a similar error of paper choice when sketching a hawk.
