SS: Plate 3 by Himmapaan SS: Plate 3 by Himmapaan
'The gentleman offered his services, and perceiving that her modesty declined what her situation rendered necessary, took her up in his arms without farther delay, and carried her down the hill'

Watercolour with touches of gouache on Fabriano Artistico cold pressed watercolour paper (the old kind which is no longer in production, hmph).

I MUST FAVORITE THIS!!!!! If you EVER do another Sense and Sensibility with Elinore or Colonel Brandon..........I will pay whatever to get your prints!!! OR even the originals!!! (Vision a bull charging at your skill and talent.) Altough I am a big fan of your other styles of art, this just happens to be one of my favorite book/movie of all time, just like Anne of Green Gable and other period European literatures.

Do you mean another edition of the book? You can of course purchase this edition if you'd care to. ^_^ There are a number of illustrations in it (I uploaded a few here in the appropriate gallery folder). Though not such clear views of the Colonel as perhaps you might like. :D

The controlled illustration is high in demand, very nice.
That dog is masterfully painted, it's close to being a silhouette, yet just a number of shades, tones, lighter than one of your dark silhouettes. The K-9 has a dark green camouflage, it's very smart looking, set back. Painted brilliantly it does not compete with the carefully Illustrated piece, Thanks for the invite to watch.

How is it that you get such smooth scans when the cold press paper is by nature so freakishly rough?
Reply
:iconhimmapaan:
Himmapaan Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
This is the chief reason I love this old Fabriano so much (see my exchanges with *windfalcon); it probably was the least rough of any cold pressed anywhere, whilst still having an extremely pleasant tooth. It was what I would call perfect (or at least near enough; if there exists a paper which retains the fidelity of pigments like Arches cold pressed but which possesses all the qualities of old Fabriano c/p, I'd put it on an altar and worship it). And now it is no more. Damn and blast.

I read your repartee there, and you're right... that sounds about perfect. I adore the ...texture? firmness? spring? of hot press, but I don't like the utter smoothness. And yet CP is commonly rough and (like this new Fabriano) oft of a too uniform texture.

Is Arches CP a nicer ground for color pigments, then? I haven't used Fabriano's to compare.. my workhorse paper is 140 lb/300 gsm Canson Montval. Arches for special projects. Their limited-run Canson Anniversary Edition watercolor books were amazing... but I ran out last year.

It is beautiful! I love the softness you're able to achieve with watercolors.

(And what is this about Fabriano cold-press no longer being in production!? D: )

:iconhimmapaan:
Himmapaan Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you so much!

Oh, no, Fabriano cold pressed is still being produced, but they'd changed the mould (and I suspect, the recipe) long ago. This remaining batch I have is from at least ten years ago (so I call it 'the old kind'), and I much prefer it to the current line. It has an almost Ingres paper-like chain and laid surface, and the watercolours just behave differently on it. The present one has a tendency to 'suck' away all the life of the pigments once they dry. D: I'd been using up the old stock on some of my Rubaiyát illustrations and a few for this book. I shall cry once I run out.

Oh! I understand now. After reading your first comment I searched Google in a panic to see if any of the Fabriano papers were being discontinued, and could only find information about a 2003 discontinuation (which was most likely the paper you're talking about). I absolutely love the hot-press, though I'm not as much a fan of the cold-press. I feel the tooth is too uniform and the sizing (moulding) isn't my favorite.

:iconhimmapaan:
Himmapaan Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2011  Professional Traditional Artist
I've never tried Fabriano's hot pressed, though I think you would have liked the old cold pressed. I may describe it as having a chain and laid surface, but it's actually very subtle. Ironically enough, whilst it may sound like it has an even more uniform sounding tooth than the current cold pressed (which is a more 'natural' random texture than chain and laid), it actually has the latter beaten by miles. I might say it's like having the best of both worlds.

I honestly don't know what possessed them to change it. It was perfect. Always, the material I like best stop being made. Always.

Sounds like it was probably a cost-cutting measure :( Most times when something is changed, it's changed for money and the end result is NEVER better.
