This is a great paper to work with and I am so glad that it can be obtained in large sizes too. ALAN KINGWELL (LISKEARD, United Kingdom) on 27 Jan 2016
I have been so pleased to discovered this paper which offers all the lovely qualities of using oil on paper without the disadvantages of the oil bleeding. The paint can be moved around for long enough for oil sketches and the surface stays robust in the face of some rough treatment with the brush. Great for flying when canvasses are impossibly awkward.
