I tried some new paper today. This sketch was done on a block of Fabriano cold press paper, 5″ x 7″. Last week I tried the bigger hot press block which is great when you have lots of line work but I wanted a rougher paper that would carry a large wash. It is a beautiful paper, the colour is more saturated than on the hot press and I can still draw on it with a pen. I have also been trying out a new ink colour — instead of black I am trying grey in my pen. It’s a little darker than a pencil line but not as dark as the black.
