Always a fan of W&N paper so I was a bit concerned when I found out they had switched production to a different mill. It is a much different paper more similar to Fabriano. The colour shift is also a lot less dramatic making judging tones a lot easier. All in all a much improved paper which is still very good value. Duncan Park (Portland, United Kingdom) on 14 Jun 2021

This paper is very nice, although I prefer the previous version of the W&N Professional paper for watercolour painting. I find this one to be better for gouache, and scans very nicely. Lu (London, United Kingdom) on 11 May 2021
