Try Different Colored Paper

Figure 1 - White Conte on Purple Paper

Paper of a different color or shade can lend interest and even drama to your drawings.

Try something different for drawing on whether you use pencil, pastels, charcoal or conte’. Even very dark papers can be used.

White and light media look dramatic when using very dark paper.

But don't rule out dark paper for dark media!

Experiment! Try everything. Don't assume. Make the support as much a part of the artwork as anything drawn on it!
