I've used it 4 or 5 times, and am so impressed that I ordered 5 sheets of it. most of my work is quarter sheet, and I am a watercolourist normally so I am not so disturbed by painting on paper. It is very absorbent, and white also,
i have framed one of the paintings mounted behind glass and it is more like a watercolour when viewed that way.
I would certainly recommend giving it a go.
