  6. Canvas for acrylics and bristol board for drawing. I like the texture of canvas and the bounce of it and I like the smoothness of bristol board to get even shading in drawings.

  7. A dark surface to achieve positive negative type drawing. Also, a surface can use watercolor pencils with pen.

    1. .....I like bristol board for the smooth lay down of graphite and the tough qualities of Stonehenge that allow several layers of colour.

  11. I'm a UArt gal all the way! I use 800 UArt for all my colored pencil work -- it allows me to put down many, many layers of color.

  17. I've now tried Stonehenge, Mi-Teintes and Strathmore Bristol Vellum. So far, I still like Stonehenge best. Though Mi-Teintes is starting to come up in my rankings as well.

  18. I love to paint on Sand paper. it may wear you pencils down but the effects are soft and realestic. Animal drawings are the best on sandpaper

    ReplyDelete
  19. I like Strathmore Illustration board for Wet Media...because it's thick and can take my abuse. I can also add watercolors to it.

  20. As of late I've been using the Strathmore 300 Smooth Bristol, which I do like. I would like to one day try the Stonehenge.

  21. I have been using bristol vellum for nearly all my pencil work but am now experimenting with Curious Cryogen for stamping and coloring with Prismacolors. So far I am enthralled!

  22. My choice for colored pencils drawing is Canson colored pastel paper. It gives me an opportunity to create different moods depending on the theme and color paper I choose.
    In oil painting I prefer stretched canvas and I stretch and prepare it myself. It gives me time to live with canvas before starting to work on it and I love the feeling of brush on it.
    As for watercolor painting, I haven't had a chance yet to try all the watercolor paper unfortunately. Maybe soon my wish will become true =)>
    All in all I love to try new things in drawing6 painting and many other media.

  23. So far, it's been Strathmore Smooth Bristol. I find the surface brilliant for graphite. I do have a lot of papers I wish to try though. 2013 maybe a year for that :)

  24. I like Hahnemühle FineArt, I use to draw portraits on, with pencil and colored pencil.
