In this brief publish, I’d like to share what drawing paper I use most of the time to build my colorful colored pencil drawings. I seldom attract on white paper simply because I obtain that coloured pencils “react” to dazzling surfaces a great deal a lot more and I’m ready to develop vivid drawings with quite handful of coloured pencils.
I used to attract on Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper, making use of a variety of paper colors they have (violet paper at the top remaining corner of the impression). Their paper will come in both multi pads and big sheets. I applied to draw on Violet hue a whole lot. I liked the paper’s colour and the colour raise it gave to my colored pencil drawings. What I don’t like about this paper is how textural it is, even the “smooth” facet has too a great deal texture for my liking. It gets to be quite frustrating to fill it in. A time sucker of all sorts… SO I was thrilled to stumble upon a distinct variety of paper also made by Canson.
Canson Colorline arrives in a lot of vivid hues and at the very least two thicknesses I’ve been utilizing so considerably. It’s possible, they have a lot more wide variety in paper thickness. I really do not know. What I do know is that 184lb. is a pretty thick paper which I like for the reason that it’s not flimsy and is equipped to withstand a large amount of layering and spraying with a fixative. It has a ton considerably less texture than the pastel paper but can nonetheless existing do the job for some artists to fill in the grooves.
Canson Colorline dim grey, 92lb. is a significantly thinner paper (grey paper in the picture over). So I’m a lot more careful with my preference of a fixative for it or how I layer colors. Having said that, I think it’s a fantastic floor for coloured pencil drawing!! It is easy but not far too smooth. Also this gray is a mid.tone gray. It usually means that it is excellent to mark the highlights with white, mark the shadows with a dim colored pencil and then create a assortment of values in between the two poles.
