For me, these Strathmore pads (300 series) are perfect. They are very inexpensive and for what you are paying, the quality is remarkably good. They are perfect for practicing technique and experimentation.

The paper has a fine tooth service which is ideal for pencil, charcoal and even crayon...far superior than slicker paper for what I use them for. The paper is of heaver stock and can take a light wash.

I do not do much pen work on these but they are quite adequate for that also. Actually, I do charcoal on them also with very good results. The paper is acid free and you receive no glare what so ever working under intense lighting.

Each sheet is perforated along the top for easy and clean removal. The paper is held by sturdy wire binding and the back is of very heavy cardboard stock which you can work from your lap if desired. Due to the wire binding and end binding, it is easy to flip over and go to the next page.

This product comes in various sizes and number of sheets. I personally prefer the 9x12 with 100 sheets each, but that is my choice...at least they give a good variety.

Due to the cost, this is excellent paper for the beginner but it is also quite good for the more advanced artist who is just trying to work new techniques out. I find that I can switch from graphite to colored pencil easily although graphite is what I normally fool around with. This is not the paper I would choose for a final piece I planned to save and frame, but it is great working with to get to that point.

All in all these 300 series pads are a true work horse. And if you really get bored, you can always remove a sheet to make very nice paper airplanes...the heavier paper will give you excellent distance and accuracy!

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.

I am working through Betty Edwards Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain and wanted something to keep all of my practice material together so later on I could look back and see my progress (hopefully). This works out perfectly. Great material for drawing on and spiral bound to keep all my practice in order. And at a decent price.

I always stick to this brand because I like their paper, and I require spiral bound books because I am a little hard on my sketch pads. They don't erase perfectly, but they get pretty close. The texture to the paper is good for catching the color, and has a nice feel to it. Overall, for a hobby artist, this is a nice sketchbook, with about the right amount of paper.

I had no idea what kind of paper I would need to begin sketching, so I just picked this one and hoped for the best. It is a decent sketchbook, but I notice that the indentation of lines remains even after you erase the line. Not so bad until you go to shade and then you have these random white streaks showing in your picture. If you're just practicing like me, it's not so bad. But, if you are advanced, I would try and find something else.

I did not receive the correct pad. What was sent to me was the same style but with perforated pages. I think actually, a more expensive pad. I do not know, but since the paper and size was the same I kept it and it draws the same.

Strathmore has become my go to pad and paper. It is a good all purpose for me:pen, pencil, marker

Bought these for my art minded oldest granddaughter (12) for her bday. She loved it and I loved not having to drive across town to get a good quality product. The paper is nice quality thick paper and can be used for pastels and charcoals too. I was impressed with it when I received it and though she's too young to notice a difference in quality, she did comment that she could lean a drawing against something and it wouldn't fall over like all her other art paper...so she noticed a difference too!
