I wasn't sure whether or not I would use these gray pads, oh how wrong I was I much prefer them to white, it allows me to use white pencils and charcoal, good quality, you can erase easily. I use them as a pre drawing to get an idea of what I want to sketch on canvas. Good quality will certainly buy again.
This paper works well for portraits.
I had never used toned paper before but an ad showed up on my Facebook page and I decided to give it a try. I watched some videos about using the toned paper before I started. I wanted to do some portraits using outlines I had made on the computer on 8.5" x 11" paper. Since I had a 9x12 pad, I cut the pieces down to the size I wanted. I printed the outlines in light grey on the paper providing me with some guidelines that barely showed. (Comment: using an outline is an aid but does not guarantee the portrait will look like the original photo – a lot of interpretation is required.) In colored pencil, I lightly outlined the portraits and began shading the shadows in lavender, grey, and muted turquoise. I added flesh tones and then highlights. I was very pleased with the results. My relatives have asked me to do other family portraits after seeing the initial ones. It helped to make a swatch sheet of my colored pencils on the paper to see what they would like on the gray. I like this paper.
Gray tone paper
Very good paper, I begin with my sketch in white colored pencil, then begin adding colors, possible pencil or water color. For intense white use a white permanent marker. It will look beautiful.
