I've tried loads of different papers for coloured pencil and pastel pencil work and this is the one I like best. It's a good balance between fine detail yet still taking layers of rich colours and blending. Also works well with a thin layer of primer, especially for the pastels.

I read about this paper in the USA Colored Pencil Magazine. Because I had been having a problem with my usual stonehenge paper not behaving as I expected it to I decided to give this a go. Initial trials on the Canaletto seem very promising and I cant wait to give it a thorough testing. Could become my default paper. Jo Goudie (Pensarn, United Kingdom) on 26 Jun 2012
I bought this for a colour pencil Portrait. I have not been doing these long and am usually an Oil Painter or draw in graphite. Last Portrait had been on heavy duty Cartridge which actually it turns works better; this was just too smooth for the work producing excess shine and I had to shelve it. However I find it a lovely surface and think I will enjoy doing delicate black and white studies on it so it's not really the paper at fault just me finding my way through a new medium and it's complementary products!
