Hey Guys
I am relatively new in all this

I am looking for Either a Watercolor Paper or Acrylics paper pads that is Archival because I don't have Much room in my small appartment to get Canvases so I was thinking of Trying on Paper

I am also going to attempt to sell Some of my artwork, Which is why I am looking for something Archival

Do you have anything in Mind that I could try?

Thank you

When I paint watercolors, I use Arches, Cold Press Watercolor paper that I can purchase in a pad form. It is a textured surface, but it can accept watercolor very well. It is also very easy to scrub, and to make deletions, and changes on it, as well. I haven't painted watercolors very much lately, but when I did, Arches Cold Press was my paper pad of choice.:vs_cool:

I Don't do watercolor either Watercolor paper is what I am after because I don't have much room in my appartment for more canvases
But I do fine art paintings and Watercolor paper is good for acrylics that I do as well

But where can one Find an Archival (museum grade) one

Any paper really is what I am looking for that is Archival and doesn't yellow fast
