Sketching on Toned Paper

Posted on Dec 28, 2016

For quite some time, I have admired the work of Kevin Keele, particularly his sketches, not just for their amazing quality but because he uses a toned paper to do them on. I recently saw Aaron Blaise post work he was doing on a gray toned surface on his Instagram. I couldn’t wait any longer! So, today I ordered a gray-toned sketchbook from Amazon: Strathmore STR-469-105 128 Sheet No 80 Toned Gray Art Journal, 5.5 by 8.5″ — I can’t wait to get started!
