Water colours on budget acid-free watercolour paper

Bought a pad of paper from yesterday, so tonight I wanted to try it out.
It's 20 sheets of 230 grams acid-free paper, with a 100% () label, so I'm guessing this is wood paper, and not cotton, but at 32,90 NOK (2,80 EUR / 2,86 GBP) I guess that was to be expected. It has a nice texture to it; not too strong, but just enough.
Didn't curl much while on the pad, though now that the individual sheets are drying on the desk, the wettest one has some curling at the top and bottom; might want to leave it on the pad for longer, or use paper clamps.

Water and colour perhaps didn't spread as evenly as I'd liked, but that could also still be my lacking skills.

All in all, I'm quite satisfied with the results, and thus the paper; at least at its price while I'm still experimenting. Means I can keep the higher quality paper for when I'm more seasoned.

I'll do some better daylight shots tomorrow when they've completely dried.
