I typically use watercolor stretched on a board when I paint. If I want something portable I usually choose a watercolor block of a paper (this is a block of sheets where the all the sides of the pages are glued together to keep it flat when you wet it.)

Needless to say, the idea of painting in a sketchbook gave me some pause.

This book is really nice, but it's the paper that counts for serious watercolor techniques, right? So what do we have: The paper is a cold press, rough surface. It holds up well to vigorous erasing. Ink does not bleed through to the other side and it holds a colored pencil line well. The paper does curl, as any watercolor paper will unless it is soaked and stretched flat on a board. I work in very light, multiple washes, going over the same area many times with glazes, on only one side of the paper. It handles that technique very well, and over time the pages will flatten out again as the book covers help to press it back into shape.

The product picture shows the book in the vertical orientation and you might think that it opens like a book, but it doesn't. If you use it this way it's going open like a note pad. If you want the option for double page spreads, turn it to the horizontal orientation. It's an extreme landscape, very wide spreads. Something to consider if layout is important to your finished art.

If you are looking for a quality book that can give you both good paper and a stunning presentation, try this one. I liked it very much. If there is one thing I'd change, it would be a tougher cover, one that resists fingerprints from all the people who want to snatch my sketchbook!

I can't stress enough how good this book is. I've piled acrylics, watercolors, inks, etc - it's extremely durable and well made. This is not your standard, everyday notebook - well worth the price.

Overall: Compact enough, quality, discreet, durable, professional looking, mid-high quality paper for watercolor or various other mediums, shipment was delivered as the time predicted and came in good condition

Details:
I needed an art book for traveling to Europe. So, I needed something with a hard cover that could fit into my bag and could handle a bit of a beating, this book fit all those needs. I'm a discreet-artist and I don't like showing off my work while I'm out, this book is just the right size and shape to be unassuming when you're in the mood for a quick draw. This book also has a great presentation factor if you're looking to showcase your work to someone. It's great as both a personal and professional art book.

PROS:
-This paper does wrinkle when you apply watercolor, but it flattens when it dries once you put the cover over it and put the gentle-pressure of the band around so the problem solves itself. If you're concerned about wrinkling, I can easily see someone stretching the paper and pinning/clipping it down to minimize wrinkles.

-This book isn't just able to handle watercolor, but most water-base mediums and more. I use ink as well as ball point pen, pencil, watercolor/colored pencils and this paper is versatile in handling what I throw at it.

CONS:
-Both my cons are of personal preference. The book is not a spiral bind. I prefer to hold my book in one hand if I have to and utilizing every corner. I find that difficult with this book.

-The book is long and narrow, so if you do landscapes this is great, but if you are more of a loose-goose artist like me who is accustomed to painting big and elaborate pieces, this book will feel like a ipod mini.

I am a mixed media artist and this is the first book I have found that holds up to every media I use. It's great for watercolor, collage, acrylic, or even just drawing. The size is perfect too! I will be buying this again when I fill up the one I have.

This has always been my go-to watercolor sketchbook. I purchased this notebook in 2013 and it served me very well. A couple of weeks ago, I purchased another and the paper quality is NOT the same. See my comparison photos between the new paper and the old. The paint coverage is spotty on the newer paper and where the old paper was sturdy enough to use both sides, on the new paper, heavy watercolor shows through the reverse.

I've read elsewhere that Moleskine paper quality can vary so I probably won't give up on this notebook all together but I am disappointed the quality on this book is lacking.

After reading the great reviews, I knew this would be perfect to use for my art journal. I use pen, ink and watercolors and I'm so happy with how well it all works on this wonderful paper.

I wish I could give a 5 star review. I love Moleskine, and the watercolor album is great. The pages don't show through with watercolor or ink. The paper has a bit of a 'tooth' to it, so it is fantastic for watercolor. I don't recommend it for sketching or ink work because the texture can cause a 'wiggle' in your mark making. But overall it's great for watercolor and I like the fact that it is bound on the top edge of the book. I am taking a star away just because my book came with loose stitching on one page, so that the page fell out when I opened it the first time. The other pages are fine, it was just one page, but it was the first page in the book!
