In this brief article, I’d like to share what drawing paper I use most of the time to produce my colorful colored pencil drawings. I almost never attract on white paper for the reason that I come across that colored pencils “react” to dazzling surfaces a ton much more and I’m capable to create vivid drawings with quite handful of colored pencils.
I applied to attract on Canson Mi-Teintes pastel paper, applying different paper colors they have (violet paper at the top rated remaining corner of the graphic). Their paper arrives in the two multi pads and large sheets. I used to attract on Violet hue a ton. I beloved the paper’s coloration and the color improve 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 significantly texture for my liking. It results in being pretty irritating to fill it in. A time sucker of all sorts… SO I was thrilled to stumble on a distinctive type of paper also designed by Canson.
Canson Colorline will come in quite a few shiny hues and at minimum two thicknesses I have been making use of so considerably. Probably, they have much more selection in paper thickness. I don’t know. What I do know is that 184lb. is a very thick paper which I like for the reason that it is not flimsy and is in a position to endure a whole lot of layering and spraying with a fixative. It has a large amount less texture than the pastel paper but can still present perform for some artists to fill in the grooves.
Canson Colorline dim gray, 92lb. is a significantly thinner paper (grey paper in the impression above). So I’m much more very careful with my alternative of a fixative for it or how I layer hues. Even so, I assume it’s a best area for coloured pencil drawing!! It is smooth but not too smooth. Also this grey is a mid.tone gray. It usually means that it’s fantastic to mark the highlights with white, mark the shadows with a dim colored pencil and then make a assortment of values in between the two poles.
