In this short write-up, I’d like to share what drawing paper I use most of the time to build my colourful coloured pencil drawings. I not often draw on white paper due to the fact I uncover that colored pencils “react” to the brilliant surfaces a ton a lot more and I’m capable to make vivid drawings with incredibly number of coloured pencils.
I employed to attract on Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper, applying a variety of paper hues they have (violet paper at the top rated left corner of the graphic). Their paper comes in each multi pads and big sheets. I utilized to attract on Violet hue a ton. I beloved the paper’s shade and the coloration improve it gave to my coloured pencil drawings. What I never like about this paper is how textural it is, even the “smooth” aspect has too a lot texture for my liking. It results in being incredibly aggravating to fill it in. A time sucker of all sorts… SO I was thrilled to stumble on a distinctive sort of paper also created by Canson.
Canson Colorline will come in a lot of brilliant hues and at least two thicknesses I’ve been using so far. Perhaps, they have more wide range in paper thickness. I do not know. What I do know is that 184lb. is a very thick paper which I like since it is not flimsy and is ready to stand up to a large amount of layering and spraying with a fixative. It has a ton fewer texture than the pastel paper but can however existing function for some artists to fill in the grooves.
Canson Colorline darkish gray, 92lb. is a substantially thinner paper (gray paper in the picture previously mentioned). So I’m far more thorough with my preference of a fixative for it or how I layer colours. Nevertheless, I think it’s a great area for colored pencil drawing!! It’s sleek but not far too sleek. Also this grey is a mid.tone gray. It implies that it is ideal to mark the highlights with white, mark the shadows with a dim colored pencil and then build a range of values in among the two poles.
