REVIEW – Hahnemühle Postcards


Postcards are a fantastic size for quick, relaxing artwork, and friend and family are thrilled to receive them. I paint or draw something on a postcard five days a week – to slip into my husband’s lunchbag each day.

I use postcards from Hahnemühle, so if you’ve followed my work for any length of time, you’ve seen them. Two new versions have been released so now I have four kinds to choose from – Nostalgie, Burgund, Cold-Pressed and Rough.

Why do I like these postcards, what’s the difference, and which ones do I choose each day for what reason?
