    I think drawing and sketching are both good for practice, but sketch paper is more expensive per sheet than drawing paper.


    This is an excellent paper for the beginner but it is also quite good for the more experienced crafter because of the variety and the fact that it comes in different sizes and number of sheets.


    If you want portraits that are about the size of a copying sheet of paper, 9x12 is the best size to buy, and I use that size most frequently.


    You can use this type of leather, which is golden when new, and you can also use a collection of Blending stumps and some sandpaper to re-point their tips as they start to flatten out.


    I like to hold the paper and look at it, but I don't like buying it online for my drawings.

    Question & Answers

    Q:

    Is this spiral bound?

    A:

    There is a holed tear line on each page under the metal spiral.

    Q:

    Is this really 70 pound paper and is it good for caricatures?

    A:

    If you plan on using permanent marker or pen and ink, you might consider the 300 Series Bristol Board instead.

    Q:

    What's your recommendation on a paper that has enough tooth for colored pencils and light watercolor work, and very light watercolors?

    A:

    I think it's a bad idea, because it's too thin for watercolor.

    Q:

    What is the gsm?

    A:

    I had to look up the term "gsm" on the internet.

    Q:

    Is it good for watercolor paints?

    A:

    An artist friend told me that the watercolor paint will cause this paper to expand and contort unless it is fastened down, so it is probably not the best paper for this kind of application.
