Comments about Arches Drawing Pads:
As a professional portrait artist for over forty years there are many papers I have tried. And some I still use as well. Arches drawing paper, cream, is a favorite of mine for use inSanguine Portraiture. Willow charcoal, sanguine Conte sketching pencil and Senneliersoft pastels are my preferred dry mediums on this paper.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Fragile, unforgiving surface
By Quality Control Paul
from Ballston Spa, NY
My 3 star rating doesn't mean I think this is an average paper; it means that I found it to have exceptional virtues and exceptional faults.What makes Arches different from other drawing papers is its especially soft, open, velvety surface. That makes it nicely receptive to dry media (I used it with charcoal) but also highly vulnerable to damage. Specifically, the slightest bit of erasure will destroy the surface, as will the use of 3M Low Tack Artist Tape, a product formulated for delicate surfaces. It's also a dust magnet.Among the sturdier alternatives I can recommend that are available through Blick: Stonehenge, Arches Hot Press watercolor paper, and Strathmore 400 Drawing Paper. The latter has no rag content but is a great bargain, yet suitable for professional work.
