"Paintings have a life of their own that derives from the painter's soul." Vincent Van Gogh

Back at the Portrait Society, Beatyanne was our Wednesday morning model and I was able to sketch her twice. Both are graphite on newsprint about 18 x 16.
I am feeling like I should try a higher grade of paper for my life drawing sessions as the newsprint does not have a flat surface but is kind of ripple-y. It does not make for a good finished product and does not photograph very well. Does anyone have any suggestions for a good smooth textured drawing paper? I would like to try a slightly toned paper - perhaps a cream or tan color.
