Hi all.

I was testing a newly purchased watercolor paper 450gms ...

Done a small portrait test with some detailing on it. Love the transparency & output.

Thanks Cyril, I checked on line and I could only find the 270 GSM at 425 rupee. Quite cheap by Australian prices. Unfortunately the do not ship overseas.
Cheers
