Sketch paper 

This is the kind of paper you’ll find in most sketch pads, and the purpose behind it is to give you something to practice on. You wouldn’t want to use it to create a finished drawing to give away or sell because it’s not durable; it is easily torn or damaged by erasing. It is perfect for the purpose of making quick sketches, and it is very affordable. Continue reading
