Am taking the H2O course and used some Strathmore 140 # paper for the 1st lesson.  I'm not pleased with the paper.. I've had it for several years and that may be part of the problem. Sizing does not seem to protect the paper too well. paper abrades e-z.

the paper Dennis suggest  does not seem to be e-z to get here in Northern New York.

THE QUESTION:  What paper(s) do  folks like that seem to be readily available here in " the upside down world" that Claude & I and some others inhabit?

 :confused: I looked in the topic marked "Artist Block" 'cause i thought that was about  H2O color PAPER blocks :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Regards to all,
Brian
