I hate buying paper online for my drawings. I like to be able to hold it and feel the paper; examine it like a monkey examines a banana; see its color. These are all vital things to determine if it’s the paper for you. BUT. I put my name on Canson paper—it’s fantastic paper.

FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE SHOPPING BUT DON’T KNOW TOO MUCH ABOUT THE PAPER

I don’t know about paper for pastels, charcoal (it’s not my best medium), watercolor, etc., but I do know about graphite or colored pencils for portrait drawing. So, this review is greatly geared towards paper for the purpose of drawing in pencil.

POUNDS—LBS

Notice how the pad reads something like 65lbs or 100lbs—something like that? Obviously, the drawing pad isn’t going to weigh 65 pounds. This refers to the stock. 60lbs is what I consider Sketch paper, and it’s usually the pound of paper you’ll get for a book called a Sketch book. But I draw traditional realistic portraits, and 60lb doesn’t hold up against all of the wear-and-tear the paper will undergo for my 12 hours of drawing on it. My minimum requirement for “finished” pieces is 80lb. 80lb is great. It’s not too thick, but not thin enough that it’s going to crinkle from a misplace stroke. 100lb is also very nice paper, and I’d suggest that as well.
If you are buying paper that is meant to be PRACTICE PAPER, you don’t need to get thick paper. If copying paper is fine for your purposes, I’d suggest about 60lb paper. For more finished pieces, get 80lb. With thicker paper, however, you tend to get less per pad (about 24 sheets compared to 100 sheets for something like 60lb), but SPEND THE MONEY if you want quality paper that is going to still be presentable at the completion of the artwork.

It's not very expensive, it's a good size, and there's plenty of paper for a month or two of drawing. If you press too hard, there will be a slight indent on the next page but it's hardly noticeable. It works for doodling and basic use, and I'd definitely recommend it.

So, I cannot really attest to the actual quality of the paper, as I am not an artist with that knowledge. I can say that the paper does seem to be of good quality- not too thin, and the book itself has held up over the past few months of school. I bought this for my son, as he needed a sketch pad for middle school art class and it met all the prerequisites. I will buy this again, should the need arise.

My daughter needed a sketch book for school that was 9x12, spiral bound and had more than 70 pages... I found that to be a bit of a task in our neighborhood! Amazon yet again saved the day! The sketchbook is exactly what she needed and a very nice quality. The paper is lovely and feels great to draw on. The binding and covers are sturdy and good quality. This is a bit expensive for everyday use, I think, but if you need, or want, higher quality, this is a great option.

I purchased this item for my mom for christmas at the last minute and she got it in plenty of time for Christmas. She really loved it and was so proud to have her own sketch pad.

I got this a few years ago from my uncle (who is also an artist) and have absolutely love it! The paper is nice and thick so if I press down with one of my pencils it won't rip, and the paper is smooth. I have drawn some of my best drawings in this book and would keep drawing in it, but I ran out of paper in it a few days ago. So now I'm trying to get another one! I would totally recommend this to anybody and everybody. Not a single complaint.

Now to go get me another.

Art student teen daughter has used several different sizes of the Strathmore sketch pads, but she likes this 9 x 12 inch size best. She got 2 for Christmas and that will last a while. Good product, holds up. Quality paper. No disappointments.

This is a Christmas gift for my grand daughter. She loves to draw. I know she will enjoy this. I purchased an art set to give along with it.
