Review: Montval Torchon Watercolor Paper

Montval Torchon

Montval Torchon watercolor paper by Canson Infinity

I thought of using another product of Canson which is the Montval Torchon watercolor paper for a personal project. The weight of the paper is 270 gsm and it has a snowy appearance like texture. It gives a bumpy feel when touch and opens up like a pad.

To test the paper I painted some scenes.

The paper suits my loose style of painting which is mostly wet into wet with minimal details. I like how the paper can handle more water and that the colors soften and blend nearly effortlessly. Adding texture is a breeze when doing dry brush. Colors can be easily lifted without bruising the paper.

    I bought one of these on sale for 5 bucks, just to try it. The “snowy” texture is great for mixed media. I’ve tried markers, ink, watercolor and acrylics with the results I was looking for.

  2. Thank you for dropping by Osvaldo. I too like the snowy texture and it creates a subtle uniqueness to my paintings. :)
