I've been playing around lately with the conte 1710 pencils since they are so highly reccommended by many people. I'm pretty impressed with them so far.
I know the paper of choice for them is smooth newsprint. I was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions for a higher quality paper that would give similar results. I like these pencils very much, and while the newsprint is great for practice (which I need alot of), I don't know what type of paper I should use for a drawing that I want to last for at least my lifetime. Should any smooth drawing paper or bristol board provide good results? I'd like to find something that will last a long time but is still fairly affordable. Expensive in my opinion would be something that costs about dollar per sheet. Thank you for your knowledge and time.
