The paper I draw on makes a huge difference in the look and the feel of the finished drawing. I enjoy Moleskine paper because there really is nothing else like it. It is so smooth and holds the graphite really well. However, Using this handmade paper, seen here, forces me to loosen up. It surface is bumpy, flawed, and somewhat unpredictable, and I prefer to switch to charcoal for this paper.
Here I have included a scan of the entire page, so you can see the uneven edges, which also add interest and beauty to the drawing. The size is approximately 8.5" X 12.5".
