Beta testingPosted: November 19, 2013
Last week I experimented with a bunch of small samples of Stillman & Birn sketchbook papers. My favourite was the Beta series so this week I am trying out a full sketchbook of 7″ x 10″ sheets. I haven’t changed my opinion. In fact, I love the paper even more now that I have a larger sheet to work on. It takes the washes beautifully and it’s a pleasure to paint on such thick white paper (180 lb). The surface is cold pressed but it’s not overly textured nor too smooth. Just right.
