Looking for a book of Poussin's drawings on a shelve at 5 in the morning, I found thin old pad of Sumi paper. I used it today for a quick sketch with ink and blue Kuretake pen. Now off with the Pig to look at the moon, the biggest and closest to Earth in 20 years. My daughter said I have to.

Hello, nice outcome! You might want to spray the paper with water and letting it dry before paitning on it, in order to avoid wrinkles.

Thank you for advice, Fabián Fucci, I will try it. Paper looks so thin, almost transparent. I use to do watercolor on rice paper years ago, paper was thicker and felt more velvety, different from this one.
