  • Starting your artwork using mid-range colored 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.
  • The Strathmore brand is known worldwide to represent the highest quality in fine art papers.  Founded in 1892 by Horace Moses in West Springfield, MA.  It wasn't until Horace visited the Scottish valley of Strathmore, with the thistles in full bloom and was quite impressed by their beauty, that he began branding his products Strathmore.

"The Strathmore 400 Series Tan-Toned Mixed Media Paper is not just for sketching! POSCA markers & Gouache look especially clean on this paper, creating a nice contrast between the textures. Try adding Blue and/or White accents to make your work pop off the page!" - James
