Testing out new papers from Awagami Factory. The first one with the girl in water is hakuho paper and the second one with all the pink flowers is bamboo paper.

I’m not used to how watercolor behaves in Awagami’s papers because it tends to bleed all over the place and blending is a nightmare, but it has a children’s book effect that I find charming. I just need to figure out how to make it work.

Hakuho is 220gsm, 45% kozo (mulberry) and 55% cotton; whereas the bamboo paper is 250gsm, 70% bamboo and 30% recycled washi. Both are postcard size (6" x 4"), painted with watercolors.

Has anyone else tried these papers? I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Notte a Saint-Claude, Edvard Munch, 1890

Nel dicembre del 1889 Munch, durante il suo soggiorno parigino, nel suo appartamento di Saint-Claude, apprende la morte improvvisa del padre. Ulteriore lutto, dopo la morte della madre e della sorella maggiore, Munch sente la solitudine e i sensi di colpa per il loro rapporto conflittuale. Il dipinto, realizzato poco dopo, riflette tutta l’atmosfera malinconica, triste, pesante in una quasi totale bicromia azzurro-marrone. Una stanza buia, dove la luna illumina ben poco e fa scorgere la figura di un uomo alla finestra, “spiato” dall’osservatore del quadro; da ogni parte, una sensazione di oppressione mentale, dei sensi.
