The hot pressed ARCHES® Aquarelle travel journal

There is now a new addition to the ARCHES® range, a hot pressed ARCHES® Aquarelle travel journal sketchbook. Many roving artists are already familiar with the cold pressed 300 gsm ARCHES® Aquarelle travel journal, an established classic.
To better meet the needs of artists working in mixed media, the Arches paper mill now offers a hot pressed version, again with 300 gsm paper.

Why choose hot pressed paper?

Hot pressed paper is better suited to mixed media work, such as pencil, pastel or felt tip pen drawing combined with a light watercolour wash or watercolour combined with thin ink line drawings. There are any number of possibilities with so-called dry techniques. The paper’s very smooth surface lends itself beautifully to watercolour flat washes, but also to lovely fused effects. It is ideal for illustrations and all kinds of work with lots of detail requiring great precision.

ARCHES® Aquarelle travel journals to take everywhere

ARCHES® Aquarelle travel journal sketchbooks are just the thing for globe-trotting artists:

  • They are easy to slip into a rucksack or suitcase, so that you never have to miss a chance to sketch a dream landscape, a face, an animal, a flower there and then while you are on the move.
  • The spiral binding means it opens completely to lie perfectly flat, allowing you to work in absolute comfort.
  • The thick board back cover of the sketchbook serves as a drawing board when there is no table or even surface to rest on. For example, it will keep the sheets flat even if you are working on your lap.
  • These sketchbooks can be used to create an album as a souvenir of your travels and also as a record of how your artistic technique is evolving.
