Today I took out a piece of handmade watercolor paper that I bought last year when I was in Fabriano, Italy. I've been hoarding this paper. I now only have 59 pieces left. I either have to find this handmade paper in the US or I need to go back to Italy to buy more. I could also just call the store where I bought it from and order more.
What I love about the paper is the thickness and texture. It is such a delight to paint on this stuff.
