Tonight's Experiment with African Handmade Paper

I wanted to test to see how the paper in the hand-made book handled a light wash.  Already seeing what ink will do, I knew I couldn't apply a very wet application.

Using Indigo and my #8 round, I did this simple watercolor sketch.  Still fluid enough for light wash and heavier with the darks

It bled through as I knew it would but with light application and it's easy to see areas I used more water in the mix.  The one major thing noticed is how the texture of the back of the page really comes through with wet application.

The Noodler's Konrad pen was used with Lexington Gray ink.
