Fold Over

Arches 140 lb (300 gsm)  Hot press Watercolor Paper
Tablet - Fold Over Style

This is my favorite paper and it now comes in a convenient tablet.  Nearly all of my original drawings are produced on this. I recommend these drawing pads unless your drawings are very large. Available in either the Fold-Over format or the Spiral-Bound.

9"x12" Fold Over

10"x14" Fold Over 



Arches 140 lb (300 gsm) Hot press Watercolor Paper 
22" x 30" Sheets

For larger drawings, I recommend Arches Hot Pressed watercolor sheets. I recommend using the back side of this paper for a smooth, consistent texture.

Strathmore 400 Series Drawing Paper Pad

Strathmore 400 Series drawing paper pads contain acid-free, heavy weight, durable, medium surface 80 lb. drawing paper. This economical paper is good for practice but since it is not 100% rag paper, therefore, I don't recommend it for your final drawings. It is also a little more difficult to create textures on this paper.
