I do a lot of my sketches on big, brown sheets of paper hung on random walls in the art room. The paper isn't really cheap, but for the amount, its a bargain.

Once a girl at a folk festival gave me a free copy of her cd, the case was made of brown recycled paper and the picture on it was hand drawn by her - it was pretty special.

In figure drawing we've been doing gestures and longer studies on brown kraft paper. We've just been using the the cheap roll of wrapping paper. We also had to do a longer assignment on it for a self portrait. If you want I wouldn't mind posting some photos of them.

I recently did a painting that I called "Fading daffodils and a lemon" on a brown paper bag that I got when I was buying my lunch that afternoon. It turned out great. Besides paper bags, I've also drawn on those orange-looking envelopes that you get your magazines in.

Here is a painting by Monica Hernandez, an artist that uses paperbags and coffee as a medium.

It's a classical medium, toned paper is. Many of the masters use it for studies. The theory being that you use light and dark charcoal or conte for lights and darks and the toned paper as your ground. Most fine art schools encourage students to use it.

I did my self portrait last year on brown paper with pencil crayons, and have been using grey toned paper for anatomy studies.

I've got a version of my torso study and self portrait up on my DA.
teddybearbones.deviantart.com I also toned some cream coloured drawing paper with watercolour for the "Frog" mixed media there.

I found last year that coloured pastels with white and black are fun for longer gestures on the craaft paper because of the texture.

In 2003 I kept a brown sketchbook for my classes.  Most of it is notes, ideas and working things out, but here's a truck I did using a burgundy gelly roll pen.

What do you think?
