I got a little bit further on this one tonight, adding some more blues to the sky and building up the greens in the lower horizon. The paper is still giving me troubles but I think I am working with it enough not to drive me nuts. Its mostly noticeable when I try to apply washes in the larger areas... and not in the details. The paper seems to develop little flakes of paper that seem to let go of the paper (ball up) when it is wet. The rest of the sheet of paper which I cut this from seems fine. Perhaps the sizing is not as good in this section... anyone else experience this?
