This is a great paper.
By Steve in Mountainview
from Hickory, NC
I use this for watercolor landscapes. The surface is a little smoother than most cold pressed papers I've used, which makes it great for a light under-drawing. It is also excellent as a surface for finished landscape graphite drawings. For the same reason it is great for drawing with a brush. This 12 x 16 block doesn't seem to buckle as much as many popular papers with a substantial water application. When a hairdryer is used it dries quickly and slight buckling disappears. It works well for mixing pigment on paper.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I'm used to Arches blocks. Take them with me hiking and use for plein air work. But I honestly might like these better—and that's saying something. The texture of the paper is amazing and the seams are a bit more durable less likely to crack than the arches. Excellent product.
This product is nice

I find this watercolor paper to be about the same as Arches which what usually use.

Great Watercolor Blocks!
from Minneapolis, MN
These watercolor blocks are wonderful, the block doesn't split like Arches does but are comparable otherwise. I use a lot of water and there was little warping and when dried is completely flat. The downside is the shipping. The ones I ordered were shipped in an envelope leading to smashed up corners. So... maybe purchase in store or elsewhere.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that the block you received was damaged in transit, and of course we're happy to help you with this. One of our Customer Care Representatives will be following up via email to assist you.

Winsor & Newton's Professional Water Colour paper in 300 gsm, has a strength equal if not superior to comparable Arches paper. The cold press surface has the right amount of tooth and a nice smooth, natural whiteness. The blocks are well constructed and the adhesive on all four sides holds the paper tight. I hope Blick will in the future carry more block sizes as well as full imperial size sheets. I would also love to try the 640 gsm version. Winsor & Newton has not historically been known for it's water colour paper, however this new paper is quite extraordinary.
