I purchased a single sheet of the stonehenge aqua hot pressed watercolour paper. I am new to watercolour and im not sure which side is the 'correct' side (i know some watercolour papers can only be used on one side). There is no marking or identification on the sheet to demonstrate which is the front or back.
Does it matter which side i use, or is one side considered 'correct'? As there is no sticker on the paper, is there another way to determine the 'correct' side (eg- surface texture SEEM to differ slightly).
Thank you!

Stonehenge Aqua HP is a double-felt sided sheet which means yes, you can use either side. The sheet itself does have a slightly more textured side and what can be considered an ultra smooth side. Since paper choice is subjective feel free to experiment on both sides and see which you prefer.
