Last month, we sent a list of artist’s names to Legion Paper company. Legion sent each artist fine art papers with the goal of getting firsthand feedback. California-based artist Mauricio Paz Viola, one of the first to report back, wrote in part-

“I would like to report that the paper test went well. The company Legion Paper got in touch with me and sent me three types of watercolor paper. I tried them and they are of high quality. I did some watercolor work.

I am happy with the results – good, professional quality… My favorite was the HP 300gm – loved its texture! It held up several layers of paint that I superimposed on it and did not saturate. The result was great! I also liked the CP 600gm. I would recommend these papers to any artist, and thank you for considering me in this initiative before it is released on the market. Please feel free to feature my work on your website and include the link to my web www.mauriciopazviola.com

 I am attaching some photos now. I want to thank you for considering me, and for making me part of this project.”
Mauricio Paz Viola received a package from Legion Paper containing sheets of watercolor papers.

Mauricio stretched each sheet of watercolor paper in the traditional manner, using tape on a rigid board. The paper is then dampened and dries flat, ready to be painted on without buckling or wrinkling.

Mauricio included photos of his paint brushes and the watercolor paints he used, working on white ceramic plates as painting palettes.
