Pinder Postcard No. 8

Yesterday I bought some gorgeous Saunders Waterford hot press paper for a new project as I needed some really high quality paper for drawing. The pad comes in a block as it's rubber sealed around the edges to prevent the pages from buckling when you place a wash on the surface. This is working out great now, but when I tried to separate the two first top sheets I accidentally ripped a corner of each as you have to cut around the edge carefully with a knife. I've got the hang of it now but as I slightly damaged the first two sheets I decided to cut them up and turn them into postcards for this project as it's such lovely paper.

Here's the eighth postcard I've created which I'm sending to a gentleman in England:

Some photos of me drawing the design:
