A few weeks ago I went to Dick Blick with friends and while roaming around and talking with my friend who has been using this paper I bought a sketchbook. It is Strathmore Toned Gray sketch paper. That was followed by another of our snowstorms and I was trapped indoors for a while, so I gave it a try for a snowscape. This is the view from every window in my apartment. All our windows face a bit of woods, a fence and then the houses on the next street. I would prefer a little variety, but I go with what is there. Since I knew this paper wouldn't handle paint I just used ink, dry watercolor pencils, and a white colored pencil. I like the effect and should do more of these.
