This week i wanted to try a new (for me) paper. Moving from one country to another helps to discover new or different supplies for art and i was able to discover in Spain this hand made paper from the brand Meirat. It’s a linen paper very heavy (600g/m2) and with a beautiful texture. Technically it seems perfect for watercolor ! But let’s put it to the test.
