Or 300 lb. The heavier weights remain flat and stiff, no matter how much water you flood onto them. The lighter weights hold their shape only if you stretch and mount them, as I’ll describe later in this chapter. Absorbency: As you try out your different sample papers, you’ll find that some sheets drink up the liquid color, while others are inclined to fight back, leaving the liquid color lying on the surface. In other words, some papers are more absorbent than others. An absorbent paper is best if you work quickly and decisively, rarely changing your mind; if liquid color soaks in quickly, this means that you must guess right the first time, since you won’t have time to change your mind and push the color around until you get it where you want it.

At that point the brush is clean. Wash it out and put it away. But before you put the brush away, be sure to shape the bristles into a perfect heart or wedge (in the case of flat brushes) so that the bristles dry out in the right form for painting. To preserve your brushes, wash them gently in mild soap and water after each painting session. Make a little “cup” of lather with one hand and move the brush with a gentle, circular motion, pressing the bristles down into your palm and working the soap up into the neck of the brush.

Easels and Drawing Boards Easels are probably the most expensive items in your local art materials store. A drawing table is a piece of furniture and can also run into a good deal of money. Both are useful, but you can easily get along without them. A watercolor easel is essentially some legs attached to a clamping device that grips your drawing board; you can adjust it quickly to whatever angle you choose. At times, you’ll want a fairly shallow angle to keep big washes from running. At other times, you’ll want a steeper angle, perhaps when you’re putting in final touches of thicker paint that won’t run, or when you want to step back to examine your picture from a distance.
