Harry - 15 mins - sepia ink

This is the final page in my 21cm x 15cm Canson HP watercolour sketchbook.
I have enjoyed this book so much that I recently ordered another, along with a smaller 15cm x 10.5cm one for my handbag. The 230gsm paper reacts well to watercolour washes, coloured pencil and ink and it's smooth surface makes writing a few notes a pleasure.

I've decided to put the new Canson aside for now and use the Saunders Waterford book I have on my bookshelf next. It is the same size (21x15cm) but is made of thicker 300gsm HP watercolour paper. It has 36 pages, comes in 3 sizes (A5, A4, A3), 3 grades of paper (HP, NOT, Rough) and starts at £13.95.

I'll be starting my new SW journal today!
