I would like to see someone with access to both Generations and Epson Pigs
make a comparison on several coated watercolor papers.  I suspect Generations
will do better.  The Epson ink has one amazing facility for a pigment,
printing on RC (Epson's Luster), and the result is excellent, but so far the
prints I've seen on coated watercolor paper fall short of Generations.

I'm getting my best result with Generations so far on Archival Matte.  I have
some Epson Fine Art on order and I'm hoping it will be in the same family of
result as Arch Matte.
