Canson Student Watercolor Paper

Testing out the paper and I am quite surprised that it dried so flat, granted it was stuck in a book while it dried. I'm searching for a decent inexpensive paper to use to bind my own sketchbooks and as much as find this paper pretty decent, my top contender at the moment is Stonehenge (plus I already have some on hand). There are still some other paper samples to test, but I don't think they will knock Stonehenge off the top spot in terms of price and performance. There are some other papers I want to try, but they will have to wait until I need to order supplies online which might not be for a very long time.

Today's sketch

Wish I remember what brand of sketch paper I used to make this little sketchbook. All I know is I don't have any more and I found out recently, for a lightweight paper, it handles watercolor quite well and dries relatively flat. I do think I got it from BJ's Wholesale a long time ago but they haven't had sketch paper available there for a very long time, not the one I often go to anyhow. So the search keeps on going ....
