Watercolor Board in a Block
from Ashland, Kentucky
As a teacher of art, I am always looking for a product that is easy to use, stable in quality and affordable. This product fills the bill.I like the fact that my students do not have to stretch the paper beforehand, and can begin to paint immediately, thus saving valuable time.I would recommend the Plein Aire watercolor board to students and teachers alike.

I love this product! I already have the 8x10 and the 9x12, they are wonderful! I paint either gouache or casein on them and they are the best product I have found! And very affordable for a 10 board pad!
Wonderful for plein air watercolorists!

I love the way watercolor reacts on this watercolor board! It is extremely convenient for plein air as it is lightweight, doesn't need to be attached to a support and is small (9x12 or 8x10) enough to fit easily in a plein air pack.

These boards are halfway between hot press and cold press. They let the watercolor flow and bloom. Since they are a board they don't buckle or warp. When finished just slip into a crystal bag...no need for foam core. This pad is one of the very best new items for plain air painting.
Good for plein air painting

Takes heavy washes without buckling. Does bend a bit.
By Vickie in Nevada
While on vacation, I happened to find and use the Canson Watercolor Artboard. It was terrific as a Pleinair watercolor surface, but back home I've enjoyed successes,too. I like the way it responds.
great travel pad
I used 8x10 10 board binding for travel. It works great. The paper is not as versatile sometimes as high end papers - sometimes lifting more than 1-2 times on the same spot damages the paper a bit where arches would not, but it handles washes and other techniques very well and does not warp easily. When you fully wet it for prolonged period it may warp just a bit upon drying, but it is very minor and does not affect the picture. Overall it is very good and the fact that it is already rigid and ready to go without sizing, clipping, etc is what makes up for the above minor issues.
