If you are looking for a heavy duty paper that is going to be able to handle a lot of moisture for wet media, watercolor paper is a great paper to work with. Strathmore watercolor paper is a quality and budget friendly paper that has a bit of a texture so that the paint will not run off the paper. It comes in a 140 lb. weight so it is thick enough to handle a good amount of moisture and is a great surface for doing watercolor washes. Check out this speed painting demo where I use a combination of India ink and watercolors on my drawing of Wonder Woman using Strathmore watercolor paper.
