Loving the pen and ink course

Anyone else done this course? Seems really good. I’m at an early stage of learning to draw in pen and it’s very different to graphite but loving it. What paper is best for pen workm

I like to use Bristol smooth.

Some people like velum or marker paper. It depends on the ink you use, quite frankly. It also depends on how thick of a paper you like.
Some inks feather into the paper, some sit on top of the paper and smear.
I love how ink looks on Tomoe River paper, but sadly, it is not produced anymore. I like a thinner paper for ink drawings for some reason.
Clairefontaine makes a blank paper called Trouphie or something like that—it is for letter writing, I think, but I actually like it, too.

I don’t know if that helped or if I am speaking a foreign language.
