I love making postcards so much,
I mail one to everyone who takes one of my classes.
 I am still working with this undesirable w/c paper, 



I bought it on sale & will use it up & never use again.
It has a blotter feel, colors are absorbed & dulled.
My opinion, Strathmore is far superior. 




I will try to combat it with collage. 
And so ... a step by step.

























quick sketches 
with an ink brush, 
followed by  
watercolor skin tone, 
then more color 
for background.






step 4

Then ready to collage ...
 

step 5


just playing and seeing what fits.
