PAPERS AND SURFACES

Papers can be hard, soft, rough, smooth, white or colored. From the thickness of stiff board to the flimsiest of tissues. Most artist record their thoughts on whatever is handy, unless they are working on considered drawing/painting.
Try drawing on sketching paper or on a layout pad, even a lined exercise book is better than no paper at all. Most importantly , always have drawing paper available ( with drawing materials, of course ) either at home, or in your pocket, or bag, or in journey. Always in mind that the texture differences between papers. The smooth papers giving a strong clean line, but the rougher enable us to catch the soft tones in a soft light which is good for figure or landscape drawing.
