Drawing books and sketchbooks are available in various sizes, page quality, covers and number of pages. The idea of ​​a drawing book or a sketchbook is to provide ready-made drawing paper in the form of a book, making it easy for artists to save their work. There are various drawing book brands flourishing in the industry since time immemorial, so which brand to go for is also an important point of consideration. Sundaram as a brand has following feature to look up to: 

Paper Thickness  

Using high quality paper will make the biggest difference to your drawing or sketching experience. When choosing a picture book, it is important to know the thickness of the paper as per your skills. A lot of skilled artist take 140 GSM of paper where negative color can be applied more than 5 times on the paper of this thickness. Several artists have tried to do the same with 270GSM watercolor paper. That’s why it is important not only to find the thickest paper, but also to understand the composition and purpose of the paper. The weight of the paper depends on its thickness. The better the thickness, the lesser it gets blotted by paints or pen ink. Sundaram offers papers with 100 and 140 GSM thickness that doesn’t allow the paint to blot on the paper.

Paper Surface

The surface is more or less called ‘teeth’ or roughness on surface. The thicker the paper, the rougher the surface is. Rough surface is typical for thick sheets. Thick, uneven surfaces tend to hold the paint, making it ideal for high-contrast, low-detail work. Toothier surfaces are great for charcoal, colored pencils, crayons, wash ink or watercolors. A smooth surface has less support and is suitable for more precise work. Very light papers such as tissue paper and light drawing paper are generally soft, but thick papers such as bristol and colored paper are also soft. The smooth surface is ideal for graphite pencils, colored pencils and ink pens. In addition, the best papers are smudge-resistant, so ink and fading do not smear or “fill in” the surface. All these paper surfaces are made available by Sundaram for their drawing books. Check out the paper surfaces in the product catalogue: https://www.sundaramgroups.in/product-range-2021/

Orientation of book
