I was a little skeptical at first. The paper is said to have no optical brighteners but it was white enough for me! I usually use Arches and I wondered if the size would be okay. I was amazed at how easily the Winsor & Newton paper stretched on my Ken Bromley stretcher. When I use Arches I find it very difficult to remove the paper from the stretcher. I think that is because Arches use gelatin as size so it sticks like glue on the edges of the Bromley stretcher. No problem with the Winsor & Newton! I never thought I would find a better paper than Arches. Winsor & Newton now replaces my Arches paper. I am really surprised.Ralph Bendelow (Wales) on 13 Jan 2018
It is a pleasure to paint onto the W&N paper. There is no need to rush and you feel in control of the flow. Michael Yates (Billericay, United Kingdom) on 23 Apr 2019
