Have You Tried Daler Rowney Murano Paper?

'Summer Greens'               13x19                   pastel               ©Karen Margulis
available $195
 I bought the paper for the SE Asia cruise that never happened. I was planning to introduce the guests to pastel and wanted an inexpensive but quality paper to supplement the sanded papers.  I had never tried Daler Rowney Murano paper but the price was right. I selected a dark gray. I decided to try it this month since I now have a stash of Murano paper. Guess what.....I liked it! Then again I like unsanded papers.

The paper has a definite texture and no real 'smooth' side. I liked how the texture created a canvas like weave feeling in my painting. I know that many artists don't like the texture of Canson mi-teintes and this paper is similar.

  • The paper is budget friendly. $3.25 for a 19x15" sheet 
  • It comes in a variety of colors....35 colors!
  • It is a decent weight at 98 lbs
  • The texture is interesting!

I reviewed this paper in a video and did a two part demo of this Ireland painting over on my Patreon Page. Consider joining us! This month we are adding people (and cows) to our landscapes! 

Demo in progress!
