Canson XL watercolour paper is a good value for money 300gsm student grade watercolour paper.

Even though it’s labeled as cold press, the texture is more like fine grain cartridge paper, it is not as smooth as hot press. Besides the traditional cold press texture, XL Watercolour offers flexibility with a smooth side on the back for drawing.

This paper is great for watercolour pencils because of the texture.  A water bottle sprayer can be used to activate watercolour pencils, and this paper is great for that — heavy enough to take a fairly heavy spray of water.
