The jury is still out.
from Bellingham, WA
Just completed my first watercolor using this paper. On the plus side, it presents a lovely, soft painting surface that accepts the paint very well. BUT... I am very disappointed in the paper's ability to hold up to the occasional "abuse" of techniques such as scraping with a palette knife, rubbing with terry cloth, etc. A good watercolor paper should allow for use of these techniques. I am finding that the paper's "soft" surface, which is very nice to paint on, is perhaps too soft to permit the artist free reign in this regard, as it seemed to become irreparably damaged with very little pressure. Granted I've only given it one try, so will experiment more before making a final decision. Thus far, I believe I prefer Arches.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Just tried this paper, positive initial experience

Hot press paper is more difficult to work with than cold press. It can be very finicky. I was using fabriano to study botanical painting and flower painting. I decided to try this paper. I just received and did a quick test, I was able to lift veins in a leaf illustration easily, much easier in comparison with the Fabriano stock I have here. Lifting color for me is a big deal for what I want to accomplish. I like the way the paint flows.This is just my first impression. I need to complete some flower paintings that didn't go so well on my Fabriano before I'm able to decide if I want to switch papers or not, but so far I like this paper and I might order some cold press too. Price is average.
