Identifying types of watercolour paper:


Hot pressed watercolour paper:

  • Has a smooth texture. No bumps on the paper.
  • This paper doesn’t suck up the water as fast as the cold pressed, allowing you to play around more, like re-wetting edges of pigment.
  • Very little pigment penetrates beyond sitting on the surface.
  • Hot pressed is not adequate for general watercolor painting.
  • It is more suitable for fine detail, such as pen and ink.
  • This type of paper works well with gouache.
  • Wet-on-wet application with diffusion will not work.
  • Glazing will lift the underlayer.


Cold press watercolor paper (Middle): 

  • Has a medium texture. Little bumps and grooves holds in the water and pigment.
  • This paper sucks up the water pretty quickly.
  • Cold press is a good choice when you want to convey texture in your subject.
  • Some pigment penetrates deeper into the fibers.
  • A painting on this type of paper ends up with a nice velvety look.
  • Diffused wet-into-wet application can be achieved on cold pressed, but there’s a risk of losing the forms from excessive pigment bleeding. The artist working with this paper must be quite skilled at controlling the degree of fugitive paint.
  • It works well for scraping out rocks with a credit card when painting landscapes.
  • Cold pressed is not optimal for glazing because the new layer tends to disturb the first layer.
  • It’s too smooth to apply the dry brush technique many artists use to create bushes and trees when creating landscapes.
  • This type of paper makes it easier to spray off an area that needs correction.
  • It has an excellent surface for combining pastels with watercolor, especially pan pastels.


Rough Watercolour Paper (Right):

  • Has the roughest texture.
  • The pigment seeps even deeper into the fibers of rough paper.
  • The wet-into-wet application works well on this type of surface.
  • Glazing works better because the paper grips the first layer quite well.
  • It does not work well for scraping out rocks when painting landscapes.
  • The rougher surface is conducive to dry brushing, which is great for creating the illusion of foliage.
  • It’s harder to remove unwanted paint (with water from a spray bottle).
