warm, wet & wrinkling

i've just been packing up my recent sketches... i've decided that life in the tropics is not good for paper... especially once I have wet it for watercolour washes... it crinkles and curls more and more... simple things like pressing it under somethinh heavy works for the time it is being press... but as soon as it is back in the humid air it withers, curls and crinkles again...

my new scanner gets more detail in the paper crinkle, than the orignal wash

the depressing bit is my new scanner is so good, it manages to capture a lot of detailed shadows of the crinkled paper... so its a trip south for my work and some serious straightening out
