Drawing and sketching

Drawing techniques are many and varied: charcoal, sanguine crayon, pastels, coloured pencil, graphite, pen and many more. ARCHES® offers a number of papers available as loose sheets or in blocks glued on one side.

Artists can choose according to their preferences and the desired result:
Velin BFK Rives® extra white to accentuate contrasts
Velin d’ARCHES® cream for softness of grain and shadow and light effects
• Ingres d’ARCHES MBM® laid, supple and strong, to give body and depth
• ARCHES® Lavis Fidélis for “mixed media” works
