Ronda - Painting on the wrong side of the paper?

Ronda wrong side of paper

Ronda, Spain, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Painting on the 'wrong' side of the paper often doesn't matter unless it shows the watermark as in this one.  Sometimes you can hide it by a darker colour, but clear as day here up in the sky.  Often manufacturers state on watercolour paper that you can paint on both sides.  But I find in the manufacturing process, the two sides can be a little different in texture.  Perhaps one side uniform in the texture, and the other more random.  They can produce some subtle differences in outcome, and the way the paint flows.  As long as you know what to expect I guess.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.
