Watercolor Passion: The handmade sketchbooks for watercolor drawing and painting
Watercolour painting is a delicate interplay of paper, colour and water, in perfect balance. Paper, with its weight, roughness and absorbency, is essential to achieve the desired painting effect. The choice of the most suitable paper is important both for watercolour enthusiasts and for those who prefer other techniques, such as pencil drawing, copying from life or for those who love to bring with them a cahier of sketches in which to collect the inspirations.
A handmade album with watercolor paper with a grain suitable for painting projects is the best gift you can give to those who have a passion for watercolors or drawing. More than a support, the handmade drawing albums become an ally that allows to enhance the quality of their artistic creations and preserve them over time.
