About this deal

Turning off the personalized advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive.

This means that a 184lb paper may be the same thickness as a 140lb paper where reams of different basis sizes were weighed. It can be painted light over dark and dark over light, it dries quickly, it remains water soluble after dry, and requires no solvents to clean up. I paint mini paintings in my sketchbooks - detailed studies of leaves, flowers, fruit, landscapes, buildings or whatever - so I look for sketchbooks that will accept watercolour washes well. I do a paint-out of my one of palettes at the start of each sketchbook as it's a great way to see how the colours work on the paper. It is acid free 200gsm weight paper and the A5 contains 30 sheets, which is 60 pages using front and back.Please note - this is not an affiliate link (I will always state if they are) but I really want to make sure that high quality products get seen. As she works fast and I work slowly with more detail, our choices are different - I love 100% cotton and she prefers 25% cotton - so both opinions may be helpful in finding a sketchbook to suit your style and needs. There isn't a bookmark or back pocket, but, like many of these great sketchbooks, the books are designed so the beautiful paper goes end to end - including inside the front and back covers. You can see that there is some warping of the paper, which is really to be expected with a 150gsm sketchbook. This really is my perfect sketchbook and I love that it was created through the passion of an individual.

Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centers that host Etsy. It was created by Erwin Lian in conjunction with Bynd Artisan bookbinders and I bought quite a few when it was released as a Indiegogo crowd funding campaign in 2015.Mine is a soft cover so it is relatively light and quite a good size to carry around - rather like a B5. It can be a bit of a challenge to get a really smooth wash with watercolour, but granulation shows up nicely. These are a good option but the paper in not identical on both sides which needs to be adjusted to when painting. I find I have to work much faster on this paper when adding watercolour, but I personally ​prefer a cold pressed surface. This was given to me at the Urban Sketchers Symposium in Amsterdam, and is created by an interesting company.
