I love how the colors turned out on this one! I was so scared I'd mess up.

This is a really beautiful and imagination-teasing painting.
The author only knows what he does with his other hand :>

Ooo can I be cheeky and ask what paper and paints you used?

oo I should get hold of some tube paints I think, I've never painted with them before and I love vibrant colours. Thanks very much for the advice, I got hold of some Arches paper and it's mmm mmm lovely :D

Oh, certainly!

I've already sent the original to the person who bought it, so I can't check the paper type, but I'm pretty sure it was Arches 140 lb cold press, 9"x11", and I used a combination of Grumbacher and Cotman tube watercolors and an old Marabu watercolor set, which has a particularly nice blue.

Arches is usually excellent paper, and I like cold press best because the water soaks in, rather than skating over it. Tube paints usually give me the most intense colors, but I've found that I can rejuvenate dried paints by putting a big drop of water on them a few minutes before I intend to use the color, and letting it soak in and turn the color back to a paste.
