Fabriano Artistico Watercolour Paper

IMG_1472I haven’t used this paper yet so am unqualified to give a full review of it. But I will tell you why I bought it. I dislike the favourite standard paper of coloured pencils artists – Stonehenge. It’s too soft, sucks in pigment, makes lines fuzzy and blurred. So I tend to stick to Mi-Tientes which I love. It’s hard-wearing and stubborn – much like myself. But sometimes it’s texture isn’t what I need.

IMG_1571It is very white and very smooth. It reminds me very much of the smooth watercolour paper that Derwent produce, so I have high hopes.

One coloured pencil artist whom I admire greatly, Alan Woollet, uses this paper almost exclusively with Faber-Castell Polychromos and he gets fantastic results. So I thought I would take a chance. It’s expensive – I paid around £34 for this pad – but I hope it works as well with me.
