Join John Derry for an in-depth discussion in this video Taking advantage of paper’s surface, part of Painter 2017 Essential Training.

Let's take a look at Painter's surface texture mimicry.…So in the last couple of drawings, we were using…paper texture with our various chalks and charcoals…and let's go ahead and go back to that.…This real fat chalk is a good example…that really shows off texture.…And if you remember, we were getting this kind of thing.…Now where does that texture come from?…Well, if we go up to my Materials drawer…I've got the Papers palette in here…and this is where it all happens.…
