I personally love the way white pops out on this background. It just makes every drawing look more close to reality as compared to a plain white background. I love working on it with the colored pencils now.
Here is my first colored pencil drawing of my breakfast a few days back:
The self portrait that I recently drew surprised me by how much I was able to achieve without having to consume the whole of my skin tone color pencil!
Its safe to say that I will be doing much more sketching in this sketchbook in the days to come! 🙂
