We have seen this new watercolour paper, developed by Canson, demonstrated by a professional botanical artist with watercolour paint and coloured pencils. The results were impressive and those artists who loved the original Fabriano smooth surface papers should be pleased.
This new paper has been developed by Canson to give the best possible capability of lifting watercolour paint cleanly, maximising the creative opportunities. They are using a new generation of surface sizing which gives remarkable fidelity and vibrancy to the paint colours (as we witnessed). If you pause between layers it is also possible to build up the painted image, adding to colour density. Clarity of image is also very good because the paint does not bleed, giving sharp edges. Unusually for watercolour paper, the new sizing gives surface strength which is so good that it withstands the use of coloured pencils better than others. This gives an added dimension to the possible applications of the paper.
All watercolour and coloured pencil artists should try this paper. Pegasus Art do have some samples so do contact us.
