Here’s the sketch I did at the Doodlewash Dinner Party last night. It was a fast and loose sketch, and half of it was completed in very low light. The apparent storm coming in the upper right is an accidental smudge of my ink, and I’m still not sure how it happened. But I was pleased that I did something fast without all the tiny detail I normally include.
Also, this was the first sketch in my Moleskine Art Plus Watercolor Album (Pocket). I’ve heard complaints about Moleskine and it’s ability to take water, but this watercolor paper version handled the water quite well without much, if any, buckling. It’s a fairly heavy 200-gsm/135 lb., cold-pressed paper that’s identical on both sides and was created especially for Moleskine. I’d recommend it as an option if you’re looking for something small and compact to carry around at all times for sketching (though they, of course, have a larger size than this tiny 3.5 x 5.5 version) as it’s very doodlewash friendly!Recommended1 recommendationPublished in By Charlie

Very nice indeed. That sounds like a great notebook.
Thanks Kirk! You should definitely check it out…I know you mentioned the regular Moleskine didn’t love water. This one seems to hold up really well!
Wonderful picture, love the turquoise colors of the water!!! I hear so much about Moleskine here… Aren´t they expensive in the USA? Or – is this where you live? Here in Germany or Europe they are really quite expensive…
Thanks Ann!! Yeah…Moleskine is a little higher than some sketch pads as you’re also paying for the brand name. This one is small and was around 12 dollars. I hadn’t found another sketchbook for watercolor quite so small so I grabbed one.
