I'm working on a sequencials and I want to use watercolor on an 11x17 economic, slick paper. I'm going to use the watercolor for tonal inking purposes So it won't be too wash intensive aside from night scenes. I do plan on using a little wet on wet for soft edges and blending slight warm and cool indications. I like to use runny effects effects as well. But I don't plan on doing anything that would require a stretched canvas.
I'm eyeballing some Dr. Martins Liquid Watercolor and Canson Sequencial Bristol paper or should buy the thrice as expensive Watercolor paper at the expense of producing half the work? Or if anybody can recommend anything I would greatly appreciate it.
The reason I ask is I have to drive 60+ miles (round trip) to buy decent supplies and I'm keeping budget in mind.
