You may use a blow dryer to speed up the drying process when painting.

But please keep this in mind:

When doing large washes or pours, let your painting rest for 5-10 minutes before using the blow dryer.

This is to let the water distribute more evenly and let the paint settle into the paper.

Blow drying when it is still too wet will push the water around and you will get unsavory things happening.

Also realize that blow drying will actually lighten the color.

It really is best to let things dry naturally whenever possible.
