Here’s a reminder of what makes our Toned Sketch papers unique and so fun to work with:

  • Starting your artwork using mid-range tan or gray paper allows for unique sketching & drawing possibilities by providing the middle value that would otherwise need to be rendered by the artist.  
  • A wider range of values from light to dark can be used, and the middle tone makes it easier for the artist to deliberately place shadows and highlights.
  • Keeping the value of the paper as one of the values in the drawing not only saves time, but allows the artist to use graphite or other dark media to push darker values and white pencils or other light media to add highlights, making sketches and drawings pop. 
  • Our Toned papers are 100% recycled, contain 30% post-consumer fiber, and also contain kraft and bark fiber inclusions which adds visual interest.

Also don’t forget about all the other formats that this surface comes in, including pads, hardbound & softcover art journals, and rolls! Learn more about the full line here.
