Mixed media, edge of the woods in A4 S&B Zeta sketchbook
The paper in the new Zeta sketchbook is very very smooth and very heavy. I was able to splash wet washes about, draw with a bamboo pen and pigment, and layer colours without them going muddy or dead. The pen glided over the surface freely. This is a hardback as I really like them, but you can also get a ring bound version for those who prefer them. A lovely paper to work on :>)
S&B books are now available from Amazon UK I notice, for anyone wanting to try them out.. I'm really enjoying using them as the paper is such a lovely quality and the sizing means that colours retain their glow. The pages in the hardbacks don't curl and lie flat for working across a double page spread.
The Beta is on my packing list for my next trip to the coast.
So has anyone tried them yet in the UK?
