Many of my artist friends have been using this beautiful brown drawing paper and I wanted to try some out for myself. I picked up a drawing pad of Strathmore Tan Toned Paper from my local art supplier and I really love this paper! It is a great quality paper like all Strathmore papers. The paper is light tan in color with a very smooth texture. There are also tiny fibers visible in the paper that add a bit more dimension to this paper and your art. The thickness of the paper is quite nice too. It is an 80 lb. thickness, similar to many other quality drawing papers. Take a look at my video review using the Strathmore Tan Toned Paper where I do a drawing demonstration of a toucan using Prismacolor Premiere Colored Pencils.
