I have used these Watercolour pads for years, and more so recently with my Art Classes. This Jumbo pad is great for a large usage, and a great price.
This watercolour paper is so good for the amateur painter . The paper is weighty with a slight coarse texture which help to create interesting effects. There is only slight buckling of paper when painting very wet,. The paint merges well when used wet in wet with good definition when doing wet on dry. Colours dry clear and bright. I find I have less 'fear of white paper syndrome' because of the price and the jumbo size pad! This is the second time I have bought this pad, it lasts ages but having tried other more expensive paper I find the is the best for me. Highly recommended.
I find the paper perfect for my painting style, I use a mixture of watercolour block paint alongside watercolour pencils. The paper is quite thick and also has a texture to it, it absorbs the colour quickly so minimises bleeding. It doesn’t crinkle, just bends a bit. I like the texture and use it to bring extra detail to paintings.
Just starting out, this gives me plenty more quality paper to practise on.
Excellent quality paper, it holds quite a heavy wash without the need to pre-stretch the paper.
Fantastic product at a reasonable price. Delivery first rate, actually arrived ahead of scheduled date. First class paper for its intended use, watercolours.
This is excellent value with the jumbo pack. The weight is superb for watercolour painting.
