Color Testing on new paper (which is awesome!)
Hot pressed watercolor paper (Laneaquarell, 300 gr) with a smooth satin texture. You still see texture if you add pastels or oil pastels which is fine but generally the texture is practically non-existent.
If you want to mix it yourself: Blue, red and yellow in same proportion (1:1:1). The result should be a neutral greyish tone.
Details of a test-illustration. I'm still unsure if water colors are the right medium. Right now I am tired of acrylics but a mix of water colors, gouache and oil pastel might be a solution. Which is kinda odd since I have like everything except oil pastels and gouache =_=; ... and I really have no idea if I can handle those but alas, I guess there's always a "first time".
