Some start to pill, bits of the paper actually tearing off. Others, as with this Britannia, just stop accepting color. I’d say the paper was average in reaching the limits of wet into wet and glazing both.
What I like best about this paper is that both the texture and surface sizing are great for dry brushing. I didn’t do too much of that here because I was deliberately over-working, so I think I’m going to paint this subject again, in the near future, so I can take advantage of the paper’s best features instead of exploring its limits.
