Time to shine a spotlight on the watercolor paper in the Media Journal.
This is not an ordinary watercolor paper. It is a handmade, textured paper that has some cotton in it. It is very absorbent and reacts to wet media in an interesting way. It is a fun surface to work on. You can leave it unprimed, or you can apply gesso. I tend to apply a thin coat of gesso to everything, because I like how paint behaves on gesso. Experiment with the paper and see how the different mediums you have work on it, both wet and dry, both primed and unprimed. Here are some pages I've done on the paper:
