Yesterday I bought a black drawing pad, only A5 size as I wasn't sure whether I would like it or not. I had a great time experimenting, I tried coloured pencils but found that the acrylic paint was best. It really made me approach the painting differently as the black paper makes the paint slightly different as well as the fact that I had to paint in the white space such as the eyes and highlights. I really enjoyed it plus I ended up just using the paints and brush without the pen outline and i like the look of it. I think I'll be using this paper again, perhaps in a mixed media piece?
