Arches Text Wove

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!
