    Toned sketchbooks

    Finally! Took them long enough...Strathmore toned sketchbooks. IDK, maybe this isn't news but the question comes up frequently.

    Here's another from Utrecht: Recycled sketchbook.
    What would Caravaggio do?

    Watch out, hard bound sketchbooks scan like ass. If you can help it get wire bound.

    Kraft Pads are good for oversized drawings. Just avoid water based media, like ink or watercolor.

    There's also the Daler-Rowney ones: Daler-Rowney Cachet Earthbound. Although I don't think they make them any larger than A4.

    I love those Daler-Rowney ones - takes abuse pretty well and the paper feels nice under a pencil tip. It also helps with it being wirebound, I really prefer those over hardbound books.

    Despite that, I'm probably gonna pick up one of those strathmore grey ones, always wanted that as a sketchbook.

    Yes. My dreams of a grey-toned paper sketchbook have come true.

    SHIIIIT! I JUST ordered a bunch of paints from Blick, if id have seen this i would have ordered one of each! Oh well, gonna have to order them anyway..... I hope the paper has some texture to it, the Cachets have zero, I like a bit of ruuggedness! Damn living in Sweden!

    I'm gonna have to invest in a warm grey sketchbook for CA's new look. Maybe I should get some grey linen canvases too. I can't wait to see what the final look of the site is going to be.

    I have a recycled Utrecht sketchbook, it's nice, but for me the paper is too smooth for graphite. Colored pencils and ink fit much better.

    I really want one of the grey Strathmore books. That looks like it would be a lot of fun with colored pencils.

    Edit: Ooh, these are perfect!
