In this brief put up, I’d like to share what drawing paper I use most of the time to produce my colorful colored pencil drawings. I hardly ever draw on white paper for the reason that I uncover that colored pencils “react” to brilliant surfaces a lot a lot more and I’m ready to develop vivid drawings with pretty number of coloured pencils.
I used to attract on Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper, applying numerous paper hues they have (violet paper at the top still left corner of the image). Their paper arrives in equally multi pads and huge sheets. I utilised to attract on Violet hue a ton. I cherished the paper’s shade and the colour strengthen it gave to my coloured pencil drawings. What I really don’t like about this paper is how textural it is, even the “smooth” side has as well much texture for my liking. It becomes really irritating to fill it in. A time sucker of all sorts… SO I was thrilled to stumble upon a various form of paper also created by Canson.
Canson Colorline will come in several vibrant hues and at the very least two thicknesses I have been making use of so significantly. Perhaps, they have extra wide variety in paper thickness. I really do not know. What I do know is that 184lb. is a pretty thick paper which I appreciate for the reason that it is not flimsy and is able to withstand a large amount of layering and spraying with a fixative. It has a lot fewer texture than the pastel paper but can however existing get the job done for some artists to fill in the grooves.
Canson Colorline dim gray, 92lb. is a considerably thinner paper (grey paper in the impression higher than). So I’m a lot more very careful with my preference of a fixative for it or how I layer shades. Nevertheless, I think it’s a excellent surface area for coloured pencil drawing!! It is clean but not as well sleek. Also this grey is a mid.tone grey. It implies that it is ideal to mark the highlights with white, mark the shadows with a darkish coloured pencil and then make a range of values in in between the two poles.
