A movement for all artists who use Aquarelle as their main technique... Our objective is to promote the beautiful, subtle art of Aquarelle - to be taken seriously as an independent artform.

For a long time I have been a member of the linkedin group 'Art Professionals Worldwide'. It is a group I recommend anyway, with lots and lots of interesting articles, discussions, questions and (most of all) comments. But this week somebody raised the question "What is your favorite watercolor paper and why?" I was going to answer "Arches torchon" but I didn't need to, lots of people gave that opinion, and with all the good reasons!
It was also fun to read the disadvantages of my fav paper: it smells awful. And, important, there are also other types of paper, mentioned by several, all with descriptions and I learned a lot from that!
