Beautiful demo Mr. Gurney -
You do make it look clear and relatively simple. May I ask you a question please? I need a bright white illustration board with a relatively high surface. It seems Crescent has recently changed their formula for their boards and it was like painting on paper towel. A bit shocking after working on a slicker surface that allowed for easy erasure and lifting of watercolor for so long. I thought if anyone knew if there is such a thing still out there it would be you.
As usual - thank you for all that you share and post. And thank you for your time -
Most sincerely and with much Aloha -
