Awsome paper. the best paper I ever used

Review

Ink sits beautifully on this paper. Very smooth, perfect for the most delicate details. Lovely off white tone to the paper, compared to other samples of high quality hot press paper I've been testing, this is by far the best. Worth every penny. Does buckle, so will be going for the block pads next time.

Arches is simply the best watercolor paper and at the best price. No reason to buy any other 100% cotton paper when you can have the best... Just love the blocks...

Excellent quality paper which takes a heavy watercolour wash without buckling and is easy to separate sheets when dry.

I love this paper. The "Block" makes it good to take outdoors and I find the "hot pressed" is ideal for making and painting family birthday cards, as well as providing a good surface for close work paintings.

Arches paper is my most used...tough and reliable. Don’t bother getting cheap paper for watercolours, professional materials make successful outcomes more likely, and you’ll learn faster.

Review

HP watercolour paper has such a daunting reputation as being the most difficult to handle of the 3 types of watercolour paper. When you are used to the more obliging CP and Rough papers, HP can be a real struggle to come to terms with. Everyone will tell you that its good for 'dry' botanical illustrations, not so much for wet in wet washes. I bought this paper because I really wanted to see what it can do. My first wet in wet landscape was a failure, and I could see that the washes were drying too fast, and leaving hard edges. The water/paint would pool instead of washing down even though I had my paper at an angle. I then started to play with painting individual roses rather than a large landscape, some wet on dry, others wet on wet. Here I was more successful: the colours looked vibrant and the shapes were convincing. My third attempt was a winter scene landscape. I wouldnt call it a huge success, but it taught me that, with HP papers, you have to work in small areas at a time, instead of large washes over the entire paper. Almost as soon as a wash goes on, it starts to dry, so its best to tackle the sky (bkgd), then the land (foreground), then the details. My fourth attempt was a floral composition which I was able to complete in about 2 hours. This was definitely a success, and shows how LOOSE you CAN paint on HP papers, contrary to popular belief. I achieved the loose flowing look by working on small areas at a time, and not moving the paint about too much, instead letting it do its own thing. This HP paper also allows you to scrub out areas even after the paint has dried. The block format means you can paint really wet without worrying about the paper buckling. Because of its smooth surface, any painting you make on it seems to glow with light. I'm still learning as I play with it more, but overall, I think there's a lot of potential in this paper.

I'm still experimenting with this paper and was very excited to receive it, having heard many favourable comments about it. It is quite expensive so I feel the need to use it wisely. Perfect for the botanical type of work I am doing at the moment. It is however not as white as I thought it would be.

Great paper if you like bold colours and brush textures. Paint seems to sit on top hence the clear colours. Also takes scrubbing out, very sturdy paper.

Arches, paper is almost unusable now, they have changed the sizing which gives horrible dull washes and makes scrubbing out difficult as the surface breaks up. Pity it used to be very good.

Post was very fast for this order, however you may want to consider taping all edges of the boxes. I'm not sure what happens on Trans-Atlantic travel or in customs but the box had been torn almost completely open on one side edge. Thanks to the air cushion packaging nothing had fallen out.

Brilliant for working VERY wet. The cold pressed surface is very rough by comparison with, say, Saunders Waterford 300gsm cold pressed paper.

This is a quality paper, great for watercolour and a brilliant ground for graphite drawings. I've not tried hot press paper before for as most people say to keep away from it but I found this excellent for my watercolour portrait. So if you too have heard this advice then try it out for yourself, it might just be the one for you!

Carriers have an issue with the sequencing of their delivery date system which takes no account of when dates are changed. Goods ordered 14 Nov. Initial date of delivery given 17 Nov which was not suitable Alternative dates offered from 18 Nov. 18th chosen, on 14 Nov. Early on 15 Nov text recd. to say delivery that day. Stayed in but no delivery. Explanation was that I had changed delivery date. After telephone call and complaint they did deliver 16 Nov.
