It suits my palette extremely well. “Why aren’t you using it today?”, I hear you say! Well, I have found something better and it is in the “brown” family. It takes time to work out which paper works best for your needs. I will add though, that I think CP artists should think of the palette they need for each drawing then select the surface that suits the required colours. The result is everything. What mood do you require? One needs to also think of the time of day and the resulting light and shadow. Certain papers and certain colours work best. Experimentation is the answer!
It has taken me about 20 years to find the right coloured papers/boards to work on. I’m still learning and I still like to try new papers.
Tomorrow I will look at smooth and textured white papers and discuss why I rarely use them these days.
