Quill Visual Diary – various sizes in ring binding are easily found in newsagencies in Australia. The hardbound and thicker paper version can be found at Office Works
Moleskine – Watercolour Notebook, various sizes. The one I show is the pocket sized one from Book Depository (free world-wide shipping). Also found locally in Western Australia at Jackson’s Drawing Supplies. See Liz Steel and her website fore even more reviews on sketchbooks. She uses a lot of the Moleskines as does the queen of colour mixing – Jane Blundell (check out her free tutorials and resources- they are very comprehensive)
Watercolour paper – in sheets and pads from local art supply stores. I show you the Saunders and Waterford. I’ve also used Fabriano Artistico and Arches. The lighter weight papers (90lb) tear easier.
Stillman and Birn – various sizes, bindings, paper weights and finishes. Available from The Art Shop , Australia (flat-rate shipping). Easily found at Dick Blick in the USA.
Other excellent choices that I didn’t show in the video are:
Copy paper – the type made for ink jet printers. They are just fabulous for a low cost, practise paper, especially for fountain pen and dip pen practise.
Draw and Wash pads by Art Spectrum – a heavy weight paper that is beautiful. Found at local art shops in Australia.
A very affordable sketchbook, I stumbled upon at Booktopia, is ring bound with micro perforations. Flat-rate shipping in Australia. The small size is about A5 size.
Unique papers I’ve seen people sketch on include paper cups, receipts, envelopes, retired novels and other books directly over the print, ledger pads, and don’t forget digital sketching using drawing apps.
