Paper Education

I’ve been out and about so much lately, I’m taking a small break.  Yesterday I spent time reading for on-line CEU (continuing education) credits in advance of my license renewal this week.  Actually, I’ve already sent in the form and received my renewal.  But I had this one last requirement to complete.

However, I’m still looking at Urban Sketchers on flickr  I followed an internet trail from “Bissky’s” beautiful watercolor to the paper company from which he got the watercolor paper.  And I learned a lot!

What Goulet is to pens, Legion Paper may be to paper.  While not as personal a family company, they seem dedicated to providing education about paper.

Watercolor    When I clicked on each paper brand, I found more information about the paper and evaluation of its use than I have seen anywhere else!

“Ask and Expert” forum is also searchable.

Knowledge Base describes and defines all those esoteric paper terms.

They sell samples!   I bought a $12 watercolor paper sampler.

But they do not seem to sell paper directly to the public.  They are a wholesaler.  They do include links for where to buy each product.
