Review: Alan Woollett - coloured pencil bird artist

I'm using the Strathmore coloured pencil paper at the moment, a few observations, it's nice, not too smooth not too textured, no imperfections....I like the surface quality, no flaws or rough spots which is always good and is just right for my style of drawing, not too rough and not too smooth like Bristol Board. It takes Polychromos pencil well but i have noticed after around 4-5 layers the pencil is beginning to disturb the paper fibre a little, I'm pretty sure its to do with the lightweight of the paper, this has also lead to several buckles which is not ideal,

So in summing up, very nice paper, but needs to be somewhat thicker in weight, say around 140 lb minimum, it would be an excellent paper at that weight or heavier.
