W&N watercolour on Bockingford 300gsm in small hand-made sketch-book
Doing small sketches (approx. 5" x 7") can be very satisfying provided it's done on a good quality watercolour paper like Bockingford or Arches 300gsm. I cut A4 sheets of Bockingford or other good quality paper into four quarters and then bind them into a hand-made sketch-book.
Serving multiple purposes, the small paintings can be sold as affordable art when selling the originals, and they are easy to scan to use for selling prints and other items as offered by RedBubble and various other shopping sites. It also keeps me in practice, with no pressure to deliver "the perfect painting" and the small size is ideal for testing out and experimenting with new colours, new ideas, new subjects.
