Space landscape sketch 170310 |
Size: 15 x 10 cm
Medium: colored pencil, ink
1 April 2017 I continue to sketch and have uploaded some of the new space landscape sketches to the gallery. Because I enjoy sketching just as much as doing finished artwork, I have been experimenting with different color pencils and papers. I want to determine the ideal combination of pencils and paper. Since I do a lot of sketching, these materials need to be relatively low cost. But at the same time their quality should be sufficiently good for my needs. |
Recently I bought the Faber Castell Eco pencils which are unusually good for their price. They contains a lot more pigment than the similarly priced Staedtler Noris Club pencils, and are also smoother to draw with.
Paperwise, I prefer smoother papers that are not too thin. By using thicker papers I can draw on both sides and save in paper costs. So far, my favorite paper is Winsor & Newton Smooth Cartridge 220gsm. But since there are so many different papers on the market, my search for the ideal sketching paper is far from over.
