i have seen watercolor paper in big rolls before. i think Winsor Newton and Arches both (not sure about either) sell paper in big rolls. also, you can do like Sarah (turtle33) and use everal sheets and frame them together

I believe some art stores do sell watercolour paper in rolls and you can cut them into any size you want.

I have enough problem handling full sheet... so 1m x 2m is out of the question for me... lol

thank you! i've never seen it in Italy, but i neither asked for!!!

really, don't know if i'll do something so big, but i have lots of projects in my mind... in Italy we are used tio say "while doing a thing, he's thinking a thousand ones" don't sound as well as in italian, but it is the concept :D :D :D
