- tan color
- nice binding
- markers show through the back of individual sheets, but what more could you expect from any sketchbook?
Overall, I highly recommend this pad to anyone looking to create gorgeous and memorable sketches using charcoal pencils, sketching pencils, and colored pencils. Given its great value, it's the perfect practice pad for any artist with a bias for pencils. I'll be buying this sketchbook again in the future.
The 50 pages should last you quite a while, and really, for a book this quality, the price of it is cheap and something I'll be sure to re-order once I run out. If you're an artist, you should really try using this tan book, you may never look at your art the same way again! :)
The paper in these books is 80 lb (118 gsm) weight, so it is ideal for dry media. The pages can be lightly sanded to add tooth for soft pastels/pencils, though I think oil pastels or artist crayons work better, since they tend to stay in place. The pages will also accept very light watercolor, gouache or acrylic painting techniques, such as dry brushing in small areas, but are guaranteed to buckle if the paper gets too wet. So, if you use any wet media beyond alcohol-based inks, exercise some caution.
In addition to these books, I also have the Strathmore 400 Series Artagain black paper pads, which contain a even higher percentage of recycled fiber (50%) and I enjoy those, as well, for working from dark to light. In those I tend to work with oil pastels, colored pencils, artist crayons, acrylic inks and/or some gouache. If these books were offered in other neutral tones, I'm sure I'd buy them, as well.
