In my last couple of posts I've focussed on Strathmore. Well, I'm doing it again! 

I've recently chosen these robust papers to create some of my finest Pennine drawings to date from sketches made on site and with my humble knowledge of photography working alongside Pennine photographer Richard Littlewood.

The papers are (as previously mentioned) just fantastic as drawing papers so the artist looking for something different  - these papers are a must!

Personally I have been looking for a really good quality and robust drawing paper for many years on which to express the environs of these hard upper Pennine landscapes justice.

I've tried many but Strathmore papers fit the bill perfectly. The quality and robust strength of the papers, complete with deckled edge on the single sheet 400 and 500 series and that fantastic watermark on each sheet (bottom left hand corner) just stamps authority as a paper of quality. 

For my Pennine drawings the paper has the lot and digging through my sketch book, photos and combining them together here are the results...
