Always a feast for the eyes, amazing brush work, hopefully one day I'll be this good. how on earth do you get moleskines to accept all the watercolor and gouache?

Tunamunaluna- Thanks for the support. You have some great stuff your blog!

Tim- It's good to hear from you. The moleskine paper is a bit tricky to work with. My technique that I'll use is not letting the paint get too watery and a lot of layering. Once your cover the paper with paint, the surface will be able to hold up more layers of paint. Also, look into Golden and Liquitex mediums. Trying things like matte gel and gloss gel mediums are great for experimentation.
