Hahnemühle William Turner

9th January 2009 | Papers

Hahnemühle William Turner is a mould-made, 100% cotton paper with a true cold-pressed watercolour surface. It is available in 190gsm and 310gsm weights, with the latter more suited for hanging. The paper colour measures CIE L*a*b* values of 96.1, 0.1, 1.5 (a natural white), presumably achieved by the addition of a small amount of OBAs. With Ultrachrome HDR inks, the gamut is very large for a matte paper and it achieves a satisfying Dmax of 1.66.

William Turner is an obvious candidate for the reproduction of fine-art originals where the texture of the paper can replace that of the original. It’s also a lovely paper for pastels and suits portraits and wedding photographs very well. But its use isn’t restricted to just these subjects. It’s a very distinctive look, something widely appreciated by artists over the centuries.
