Janet Darley – Preparatory Sketches

In preparation for her watercolour demonstration at the Mall Galleries, Janet Darley has produced a selection of sketches and preliminary paintings on Saunders Waterford HP High White 425gsm paper. This is a 100% cotton paper with a gelatine surface sizing, mould made at St Cuthberts Mill in the South West of England. Here Janet has used the new improved HP paper, which has a wonderfully smooth surface.
