    I have now used this sketchbook for pen and ink, pencil, watercolour pencils - adding water with a medium brush pen, and watercolour washes with a sable brush.

    The results were very pleasing and the paper was a pleasure to work on. I was very surprised at how well the paper, at a modest 140gsm took watercolour washes.

    I\'ve also used with success, different colour pencils, Caran d ache pablo, Polychromos and conclude that it is only the harder Derwent Artists and Studio that scuff up the paper when building up layers and pressing harder, that scuff the surface. I now know not to use these with this paper.

    I am pleased to say that my high opinion of Hahnemulle is now restored, and I can now give 4 stars, especially at this price.

    Overall, I do like this paper better than the Winsor & Newton 180gsm. (Posted on 20/06/2013)

    For several years I have used W&N Hardback sketchbooks and although not as good quality paper as when they were bound in dark blue cover, as opposed to the present black, they have served me well in all media including light watercolour washes.

    I thought I would have a change and bought the Hahnemuhle, having used their watercolour paper blocks with pleasing results.

    So far I have applied oil based Pablo colour pencils which were satisfactory, but then when using the wax based and harder Derwent Artists Colour pencils, the paper would not layer colour well and easily scuffed up the surface. As a result I had to abandon a drawing that I\'d spent 45 minutes on.

    So far, the paper seems adequate with light pencil but have yet to see how it handles ink and watercolour. I will write another review when I have.

    I must add that one of the best sketchbooks I have ever used are the SAAs Blue Bell range, at an excellent price.

    NOTE WELL: I am rating this based on using Derwent Artists Colour pencils only. (Posted on 17/06/2013)

    I am a big fan of Hahnemühle sketchbooks, which I have been using for a couple of years. The paper is heavy enough to take a light wash and is of good quality. (Posted on 14/11/2012)
