I have done pretty well all of my graphite lessons on printer paper. I've found it works a treat.  O0

Val, I love copy paper for pencil work too. Steve mentioned "Hot press" watercolour paper but it is so very expensive, I don't know about Bristol board but would like to know what others think of it so if and when you get some Mea, let us know what you think of it. Thanks,    Patricia

I haven't had the best of luck with some of the 'drawing' papers. So I save my good paper for when I do a drawing for someone.
Cheers, Val

My rendition of the protea, must say it was not as easy as Nolan were saying but I tried my best.
