Before you purchase this book it is important to know that you are really being overcharged for a brand name. Quality-wise, the yellow-tinted paper is decent with the capability to hold several washes before warping considerably and the sleek black cover not only looks impressive but is also heavy enough to smooth out any slight warping that might occur. Unfortunately, this book is only slightly larger than your average notecard measuring at exactly 5.6x3.6 inch (a fact I personally believe should be included in the title of the product rather than being tucked away in product dimensions), and contains only 30 actual SHEETS which is a bit misleading considering it states that it has 60 pages in the product details(I'm guessing they meant front and back but the ambiguity is deceiving). This book is also extremely awkward to hold due to it's landscape orientation and it is impossible to remove pages from it without destroying the binding. In summary if you want to pay $10+ for a brand name notebook of average quality go right ahead otherwise I suggest purchasing something of similar quality like a Strathmore Visual Journal (I recommend buying the 5.5x8 inch book but, if you are set on a pocket notebook, they also have 3.5x5 inch books for $2-$3 depending on paper weight)or, if you're really ambitious, making a sketchbook of your own (conceptart has a nice tutorial,just google "conceptart how to make a sketchbook" and use watercolor paper rather than normal paper to get a notebook tailored to your own needs!). I hope this helps!

I wanted to start watercoloring. I got the idea to get a pocket sized journal and do one tiny watercolor painting each day from a friend. I wanted the daily planner for 2016 that had blank pages, but couldn't find it at my Blick store. I saw this and decided to try it instead.

First off, 60 pages actually mean 30 double-sided pages. I know, this is pretty crappy advertising. Just know that going in to this pocket sketchboook that if you want 60 pages, you'll be watercoloring on both sides of the page. I had planned on doing this anyway, so it did not deter my purchase. The paper IS impressive. It absolutely can handle a watercolor painting on each side. I've included an example of the first two watercolor sketches I did. They are on opposite sides of the same page and were heavily layered.

Some have complained about the top binding. I actually prefer this as I'm not trying to paint in the edges nor do I have difficulties positioning my hand for brush strokes. I find the top binding is easier to hold open while working.

The size is perfect. I use a Van Gogh 12 color travel palette, also pictured and I just use a rubber band to hold them both together as they are almost identical in size.

Others have criticized the ability to remove pages from the journal. I can't speak to that, as I don't intend to remove pages. I will high-res scan any pieces that I like to frame or sell as prints. Aside from that, a razor blade or exacto knife should remedy any difficulty removing pages and I would assume most artists/crafty folks have one lying around for various projects.

The price for the paper quality and convenience is fair in my opinion. Ten bucks is on the low end of what I'm used to spending on various supplies and this should last me 2 months.

Overall, it's a great quality book that works absolutely perfectly for my needs.

I tried this notebook and was very disappointed. The paper is really thin, and buckles quite easily. To use it effectively with watercolor paints, you have to make sure that you don't use too much water, otherwise, there will be so many buckles in the paper that keeping the notebook flat with the elastic, will not help very much. That sort of defeats the purpose of using a Moleskine.

I use Moleskines for drawing with pencil and Sakura ink pens. They do not stress the paper and the artwork looks really good. If I want to use color, I use colored pencils or oil pastels, nothing wet. If I am using watercolor, I carry the Strathmore watercolor notebooks, (Visual Journals), that come in 90 lb or 140 lb weights, - "real" watercolor paper, that delivers results without the buckling.

As happy as I was to see Moleskine watercolor notebooks, after trying them, I went back to the Strathmore books, and will remain with them unless and until Moleskine decides to put "real" watercolor paper into their otherwise fabulous books.

Moleskin thrives on great products and this is no exception. This pocket-sized pad is full of high quality watercolor paper. I believe that one side is cold press and the other is hot press (but I'm not absolutely sure). I found this a little too small for me, but perfect for postcard sized renderings. Note: I have bought a couple of these, one was not preforated and the other was (so pages were removable). Not sure why the versions were different. Great for taking visual "notes" -- nice quality!

I'm trying to teach myself to use watercolours and this little book is perfect for practicing techniques and strokes without wasting full-size sheets of watercolour paper or cutting them into trial size bits. The pages are thick enough to take lots of water and even though they'll curl a bit, when closed the elastic keeps everything nice and flat so using the other side of the page later is never a problem. Also, the binding is excellent - if paint reaches the inner edge, it doesn't seep onto other pages... however I try not to be over-zealous with the paint toward the outer edges. I also make notes on each page so I'll know what I was trying to achieve, what colours I used and what steps I took. It's cute, it's sleek and I love it! I'll definitely buy these again!
