Student grade - sub par Strathmore
Paper doesn't stand up to much reworking and even puckers up while you're painting. The top sheet is supposed to be removable to make the grey sheet underneath a "customisable" cover, but the glue from the outer sheet makes it a mess when removed. I bought it to use for an animation project because I needed a lot of paper that was inexpensive. It was inexpensive all right, but not much fun to work with. I usually buy canson XL pads, and prefer it considerably over this paper.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Bought this because it was on sale and cheap anyway, not going to spend big bucks on watercolor paper while I'm still learning the medium.I don't know what to tell you, it's watercolor paper. Couldn't say whether fancier stuff is a magical experience but this works fine, it's the thinner variety so it still curls a bit after working on it. Doesn't go into convulsions when it gets wet, so I guess that make it watercolor paper. What a world.Let's talk about the 'vision' gimmick though. With the tape-bound pad, the steel blue sheet is stuck in with the 30 white pages, so mine tore out immediately when I got a bit too rough removing a lower page. It's basically just a free sample of their Toned Whatever mixed media paper I guess, wouldn't really want a drawing out exposed on the surface where it could smudge onto things anyway. The wire-bound ones don't look like they'd have this issue, but I have to take a craft knife to the micro-perforated edges on those to get the sheets out without bending up the binding so they're more of a hassle (assuming the Canson XL wire-bound pad I have is comparable).Can't complain about free paper though, I was debating getting a pad of the toned sketch paper so maybe the scheme I'm imagining they have going on will work. Also if this review gets posted like 3 times don't blame me, only one of those duplicates could have been my fault.
