My friend and fellow artist Gill bought me a pot of Daniel Smith watercolour primer. This can be painted on to lots of different substrates to allow you to use them for watercolours. I wasn’t convinced it would work although Daniel Smith is a well respected name, however I painted this on a small wooden panel after just one coat of primer. It would probably be better with a couple of coats but I am impressed with the result. The painting is mostly Windsor and Newton artist colours.
