Favini Refit recycled paper

Artist Joe Mitchell reviewed the Artway sketchbook (brown kraft paper)

'I quite like drawing on rough surfaces, it works really well for loose and gestural work. You can't really produce anything with precise detail but it's really interesting what you can up with on the textured surface. I actually really like the earthy colour of this paper too. It makes me want to try a blue pastel to complement it.'

Joe's opinion on Favini's Refit black paper with wool fibres

'I've never tried white pastel on black paper but I may now have discovered a very fun way to draw using this paper. I couldn't seem to blend with it much but had no problem layering my pastel pencil on it. Using a rubber worked well too. You know with some paper, it can only take so much until you can't work with it anymore. This paper has an interesting rough texture and didn't have that probem. '

Caricature artist Pat Kohlhammer's thoughts on Shiro echo grey paper

Pat mainly draws caricatures and paper with a fairly smooth surface works best as he draws with continuous, long lines that he executes with experienced wrist movements.

'This paper had a nice surface and the pen flows smoothly on it. Blending also works really well.'
