All in all, this is about the perfect set for the watercolor beginner. The paper is much like professional watercolor paper and is a pleasure to use. The color is accurate and good on the paper and it works well. This book is my technique book.
One side is textured; the other side is smooth. The texture is spot on and takes the watercolor paint well without pooling, smearing, pilling or wrinkling the paper.
This watercolor pad is really amazing because the paper is heavyweights and also spiral-bound. The paper is durable and withstands watercolors perfectly! It's nice, heavyweight paper that holds up to watercolor.
