Derwent launch new Watercolour Paper
Derwent’s new beautifully smooth natural wove Watercolour Paper has been especially developed for use with water-soluble pencils, but it can also team up with all types of water-soluble media; particularly Derwent’s new Artbar range and their Inktense Blocks.
The superior smooth texture of the new Derwent Watercolour Paper makes it incredibly versatile; it enhances your pencil work whether wet or dry, and is ideal for intricate watercolour paintings as well as even washes of colour, or a combination of the two!
The heavy weight 300gsm paper responds well to washes but Derwent recommend that the paper is stretched prior to use if a particularly large area is to be covered or a heavy wash used.
The new Watercolour Paper is available in pads in the most popular sizes ranging from A2 to A5. Each pad contains 12 sheets of 300gsm, white, acid free watercolour paper and features a watercolour drawing of a Rhino by animal artist Bev Lewis (UKCPS) on the cover. Prices start at £5.99 for an A5 pad ranging to £22.99 for A2.
