I love the look and feel of Stonehenge Cream paper. Carl Titolo introduced us at SVA and I haven’t looked back. It takes charcoal, gel pen, pencil, and ink very well. I used it for the paintings in BIRD and OUR CHILDREN CAN SOAR. For my next project, I would like to find a sturdier paper that handles color better… especially skin tones.
I’ve been looking at Arches Cover because it has a similar vellum surface as Stonehenge…not too pressed, but not at all rough.
Ideally I’d like a paper that is:
-cream or off white
-weighty (250 gsm and up)
Let me know what works for you, or what doesn’t!
