This Strathmore Toned Tan 118gsm Spiral Bound Sketchbook is suitable for a range of drawing and sketching techniques.
This tan colour paper is mid-toned, meaning that in any of your drawings you will not need to render those middle values yourself. By utilising the medium tone of the paper it is easy to deliberately place the darkest of shadows or the brightest of highlights with your favourite drawing and sketching tools. This technique saves time and allows you to emphasise those dark and light value. For dramatic effects use this paper with the darkest graphite or charcoal and white or pale toned pencils, and really make your drawings pop!
Strathmore Toned papers are 100% recycled and contain 30% post-consumer fibre. The paper also features kraft and bark fibres which adds textural interest to the paper.
These sketchbooks contain 50 (Size 9" x 12") or 24 (11" x14") sheets of spiral bound 118gsm (80lb) Toned Tan drawing and sketching paper. The 9"x 12" sketchbooks are bound on the longest side and the 11" x 14" sketchbooks are bound on the shortest side.
A Strathmore Toned Grey 118gsm Sketchbook is also available.
Shows up white and coloured pencils very well, a pleasure to use. Cat Cruickshank (Glasgow, United Kingdom) on 22 Jun 2020
Excellent paper to draw as a beginner. If you haven't tried it. Once you draw on this paper there is no going back on white ever again. The value is somewhere in the middle so its easier to go dark or lighter depending on your drawing. This paper is spiral bound and has 50 papers with a good tooth. Its 118gsm so not the toughest out there, but quality is superb. I purchased two and will purchase more in future. Sanjay Washington (Stonehaven, United Kingdom) on 4 Feb 2021
