In this temporary put up, I’d like to share what drawing paper I use most of the time to make my vibrant colored pencil drawings. I rarely attract on white paper because I come across that coloured pencils “react” to dazzling surfaces a good deal much more and I’m capable to build vivid drawings with really handful of colored pencils.
I made use of to draw on Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper, using a variety of paper hues they have (violet paper at the top remaining corner of the image). Their paper will come in both equally multi pads and significant sheets. I utilized to attract on Violet hue a large amount. I loved the paper’s shade and the colour boost it gave to my colored pencil drawings. What I never like about this paper is how textural it is, even the “smooth” facet has much too significantly texture for my liking. It will become pretty frustrating to fill it in. A time sucker of all sorts… SO I was thrilled to stumble upon a distinct type of paper also produced by Canson.
Canson Colorline will come in several bright hues and at the very least two thicknesses I have been making use of so far. Perhaps, they have more range in paper thickness. I never know. What I do know is that 184lb. is a incredibly thick paper which I love mainly because it’s not flimsy and is in a position to withstand a lot of layering and spraying with a fixative. It has a ton a lot less texture than the pastel paper but can even now present function for some artists to fill in the grooves.
Canson Colorline darkish grey, 92lb. is a substantially thinner paper (grey paper in the graphic higher than). So I’m extra thorough with my decision of a fixative for it or how I layer shades. On the other hand, I think it’s a perfect floor for coloured pencil drawing!! It’s sleek but not far too sleek. Also this gray is a mid.tone gray. It indicates that it is great to mark the highlights with white, mark the shadows with a dim coloured pencil and then produce a array of values in among the two poles.
