Digital Garden : 252

An experimented painting with watercolor paper called 'Canson Frontenay', I just wanted to test it doing simple painting But I've gone a bit too far.

You can view the painting process here.

======

Here's my opinion for this paper, for anyone who havent tried this watercolor paper before, but wanted to read a review before purchasing.

Since I've been using Montval watercolor paper for quite a while, and I would say It's similar to Montval [They are both from Canson, But I feel like Frontenay's paper fiber is a bit 
more flaky, and feel harder to paint, Its surface is quite durable, even when I scrubbed it with eraser so many times.

And its surface is displayed as 'Rough' on the cover but it looks like semi-rough to me. [also pretty similar to Montval which has semi-rough surface]
and this paper has smooth surface on the back side. But I haven't tried using it yet.

I have some more new watercolor paper blocks sitting in a shelf waiting for me to write a review for you guys, but I also need time to try them all first. Dead (RIP) so busy.

=============

Tools:
Sennelier L'aquarelle french artists' watercolor
Holbein artists' watercolor
Holbein artists' gouache
ZIG brushables marker
colored pencil
300g Frontenay watercolor paper
