Farmhouse Inn, Yate on Fabriano Paper


Watercolour of Yate, 15" x 11" on Fabriano Rough 300gms.

My last piece of Fabriano watercolour paper and a scene of a pub near me.  I'm sure if you used a certain type of paper often enough, you'd get used to it, but I don't have enough.  I'm more comfortable with Saunders now.  Fabriano seems to be a bit rougher and stiffer than Saunders and not as absorbent.  I'll try the same subject on Saunders soon, and do a comparison.

Lots to discover in this painting Tim after the eye goes to the red car.


Thanks Doug. Yes it's strange that! I have now done a larger painting of the same scene but on Saunders for comparison and will post soon. Have you used Fabriano?
