How many pages are in Moleskine watercolor Sketchbook?

This Moleskine Watercolor Sketchbook comes with 60 pages and is the cutest size to carry on the go. This one was a new find for me, and I LOVE it! It is a narrow rectangle shape, it closes shut with an elastic and best of all the paper is a good quality ivory toned watercolor paper that is a joy to paint on. There is a bonus pocket flap included on the inside of the back cover.


Moleskine Watercolor sketchbook review:

  1. The paper quality in this Moleskine Watercolor Sketchbook is impressive I lay down my paint + water liberally and the paper easily withstands it.
  2. The two page spread is a long skinny rectangle of 3.5inches by 11 inches which is a new size for me that I am excited to paint!
  3. I also like to paint two page spreads and use the back and front of a page- and the Moleskine Watercolor Sketchbook pages are strong enough to handle all that water. Highly impressed with it and definitely would recommend.
  4. This Sketchbook is the perfect size to travel with, it is tiny, closes with an elastic and has a strong rigid cover.

I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pens which behave like watercolors in this sketchbook below to paint Easy Watercolor Flowers. I found that these pens easily created beautiful watercolor effects on the Moleskine Watercolor Sketchbook paper.
