Black sketchbook is made from 180gsm paper suitable for various art forms. These sketch books are available is various size starting from small black book to A5 black book/ square black book. Multiple sizes suit every requirement in terms of price and usage convenience. Book are hard bound which makes it last longer. We have used lighter but superior quality card board because of which weight of the books are light that allows easy carry and less shipping weight.
Until now white has been the base of all sketch books, we thought lets experiment with paper and try making Black paper sketch book. We observed and learnt that black paper actually allows you to explore your creativity in terms of understanding colour usage as you have to study light and shadow in a more detailed manner while making portraits on black paper, you have to use colours accordingly while doing gouache painting / acrylic painting etc. Black drawing book saves your time in creating a background colour.
Working on black drawing book would be easy if you use light pencils as it will be easy to erase lines when needed.
Some Art mediums that could be used on black sketch book are:
- White pens/ silver pens/ golden pens.
- Other pens that have opaque ink.
- Colour pencils/ metallic colour pencils.
- White charcoal and pastel pencils.
- Paint markers.
- Gouache and camel acrylic colours
- Brush lettering pens.
- Pastel chalks.
I personally loved the size of the sketchbook..perfect for practice purpose and the paper is smooth to work on..the gelly roll pens work super great on them..would recommend it 10/10
