Update 2/8/11: The lecture was a great success.  We were given swatches of Arches and Canson paper as samples, which, I’m sure to keep as reference for a long time to come. Ed is so incredibly knowledgeable about paper , that he almost seems obsessed. He was able to  describe so many varieties of paper, with the mediums and techniques that they work best with. Ed showed us samples of paper with water color paintings, ink paintings, charcoal, pastel, markers, etc, to clearly demonstrate the papers qualities across the various medium. Now I am inspired me to experiment with different papers, instead of just being a slave to my roll of Arches Rough.
