Painting on coloured paper 

Experiments with watercolour on coloured paper today. The paper colour will change the paint colour except where you use opaque white gouache. That can either give you a white base or an opaque version of the main colour. We painted little daffodils on three colours of paper. Well, it is nearly spring. I think the last I did, on light brown paper, was best. Largely because I was getting used to the subject and zoomed in on the detail.
