Arches Text Wove paper is a favorite with my calligraphy friends. It feels about the same weight as the Arches MBM Ingres paper but I think it may be 100% cotton. It performed beautifully using the same technique (laid on wet plexiglass without tape).
I wet the sky area first and dropped in Daniel Smith Opera Pink and Cobalt Teal Blue. Then I drew the field with Sap Green and added water to wet this area. I added French Ultramarine and Veridian at the horizon line, and some more opera pink and teal until I was happy with the saturation. FUN, FUN, FUN!
This next test needed a bit of a sketch with a light pencil. I did this on the paper while it was dry. Next I wet the glass and laid the paper on top. Although this paper was considerably heavier than the last one, it still stuck fine without tape.
This is also a wet on wet painting, worked in sections. Once I stopped fussing with the drawing, it was a lot of fun to do.

Included in my paper stash was a small piece of Arches MBM Ingres 60 lb 75% cotton paper. It seemed an ideal paper for my next experiment.
I wet the glass thoroughly and laid on the paper. I didn't tape the paper because the water held it firmly in place.
First I wet the sky area and dropped in French Ultramarine. I then moved into the foreground letting it bleed into the sky to create a middle ground. After it was dry I added the trees. I cheated on the highlights by using a white gel pen.
