Great for beginners
By A busy art student
from Norwood, MA
As someone just learning how to use oil paints, I find these incredibly easy to work with. Different colors mix very well with each other, allowing the artist to create a virtually endless array of vivid hues. The paint takes a very long time to dry, allowing the artist to keep working on their painting for days on end. They do have a strong smell, though, so I suggest working somewhere ventilated.
Very good quality notebook
Though this notebook is expensive, it is very high quality. The pages are thick and sturdy, as is the outside cover. It's rather small, making it the perfect size for painted sketches or painting on the go. However, I do wish the pages were perforated, so that the paintings could be cleanly removed.
I usually sketch in the Pentalic watercolor sketch book which is the same size. I wanted to try this one, that's a bit lower priced. The pages are a bit thinner, but still VERY nice and thick watercolor paper. It has a couple more pages than the Pentalic, so great value. Lays flat, has the same end pocket and same stretchy fabric to hold the book closed. Absolutely love it!
Watercolor journal, moleskine
This is my second one. The quality of the paper and its sturdiness really holds up. Very minimal warping at first but lies flat when completely dry.. I do wish I could find a portrait style as well, but I'm pleased with the landscape.

The Moleskine books fit in your pocket. This model with 70-lb watercolor paper is perfect for adding color and detail to your travel notes and observations.

Smoother paper than I expected
Was surprised at the texture of the paper, it was smoother and shinier than i expected cold press to be. But overall, really like the notebook.
Moleskine Watercolor paper
from Baltimore, md
Does anyone know the manufacture of the watercolor paper included in the journals? I believe they gave us weight already. I'm Parent sheets or Blocks of it to bind my own books in sizes that are not available. I prefer working in portrait.

Not as good as Arches paper
from Washington DC
The paper quality is poor. It does not absorb water well. As a result, you cannot practice many watercolor techniques. If you are a fan of Arches paper, you will be disappointed by Moleskine.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that the paper in these notebooks doesn't perform as you need. Please look for a member of our Customer Care Team who will be following up to assist you.
Nice quality paper!
from San Antonio, TX
I use this for a watercolor sketching journal with a small set of travel watercolor pans. I love the paper on this and it seems to take water well without much buckling. I am doing sketch and washes so I'm not using a ton of water. I haven't tested it under those conditions, but I love it for washes!
