It's a sunny day in northern california, perfect for painting. Was out all morning and haven't finished. Accidentally, I took along some hot press watercolor paper which is not my favorite but did what I could with it. Last year while living in San Francisco, I only painted on hot press. Here are a couple of my paintings from the neighborhood.
It's very difficult to do graded washes on hot press. I think that it works best for line washes using pen and ink. It is amazing how the water media is so different with what you paint on.
