I have seen quite a few ads recently for ARTEZA art supplies, an American company in Wilmington, Delaware.

I ordered their 32-sheet pad of 140lb. watercolor paper.  I am pleased to say that it is much better than I thought for the price. (64 sheets for $22.98 for 9" x 12" size through Amazon).  It seems to take a lot of water without buckling.  Paint flows nicely over the surface.  Colors stay bright and true.


Good buy!

Thanks, Val.  I plan to buy more to use with my senior citizen class.  I think that watercolor painting is the best option when working with them.
