Testing Another Sketchbook

Yes, another. This is the one I’m using for June’s 30 x 30 Direct Watercolor challenge… it’s the Arteza 5.5 in. x 3.5 in. landscape watercolor sketchbook that I purchased from Amazon. $14.99 for a pack of two… I believe they’re only sold that way.

Update: I just looked and they’re $13.98 for two through Amazon… at that price you can try them without guilt!

This small size is perfect for painting on the go. And it’s quite thick at 80 pages. As comparison the popular watercolor Moleskine has 60 pages.

You can see in this view of the bottom of this book that as of this afternoon it’s just over halfway filled.

I’m looking forward to seeing how the binding stands up when the book is full.

    • It feels like the Global watercolor journal but the paper’s very different. Sometimes better as I can lift easily and the watercolors blend beautifully but it’s worse in others… it takes much longer for the surface to dry and especially troublesome, the binding separates and the signatures become unstable. I still like it though. Just checked Amazon and it’s $13.98 for two now. I’ll put the link to Amazon above in the body of the post. Thanks for the love Bobbie!

      • Thanks Dana!
