This is a very clean work of art! I love it! Do you mind answering a question about where you got the hot press watercolor paper and how much it costs? ^^

Thank you :)

I use several different papers but recently I've been using Canson Moulin Du Roy hot press a lot. I order all my papers from Jackson's Art Supplies since paper prices are sky high here in Finland. Here's a link to the 9x12 pad:…

The pad is 10.70€ and when I switch currency to UDS it says $13.31. Not a bad price at all.

Canson is a rather common brand so I'd suggest checking with your local art supply stores as well.

Oh sweet! Thank you as well! I work at an art supplies store, but we only sell cold pressed papers and not hot pressed.

These are some cute polar bears and I'm jealous of your mom! xD

Hehe, thanks :)

Hot press is kind of rare here in Finland as well and if it is available it usually costs and arm and a leg.

;) I appreciate it! I'm glad I asked you! :heart:

Happy the one who could actually receive such valentines card. You made the fur look so smooth with simple lining and their facial expressions look cute. Perhaps even overtly so but it fits with the style
