ShellsOn the Transience of Light, Colour, and the Artist’s Digital Platform
By Georgina Kreutzer

Georgina Kreutzer is an artist studying her Master of Architecture in Sydney, Australia. Her artwork is often characterized by ethereal textures and a soft palette, juxtaposed with metallics, high detailed still lifes, and bold photoshoot style portraits.  In this Issue, Georgina gives her tips on working with toned paper and her reasoning for why she prefers it to express light in her drawings. She also reflects on the growth of social media and how it has helped propagate ideas among a vast, virtual community of creatives. Learn more about Georgina and see her radiant artwork in the Artist Newsletter.

Our Toned Sketch paper is available in warm tan and cool gray, and a wide range of formats. The middle tone of the paper allows the artist to use a wider range of values from light to dark, making it easier to deliberately place highlights and shadows.

TonedQuestions from Our Website: What are the fiber inclusions in your Toned Sketch paper?

Fiber inclusions are added to our toned paper for the sole purpose of creating a visual effect. The result is a soft, natural look. Read the Artist Newsletter for more information on what the fibers are and where they come from.
