All illustration boards are not created equal. Your choice of illustration board is as important as the mediums you use to create your artwork. They can be smooth or textured and add character to your sketches or paintings.
Pigment Lab is proud to carry Bainbridge art supplies and has the illustration board that's right for you. A Bainbridge illustration board should be on every artist's shopping list, as these boards can help to bring out the best in your artwork. They are rigid and hold up well to both wet and dry media.
A Hot Press board has a smooth surface and is often preferred for drawings and paintings. Bright colours are really brought to light when the surface is flat and untextured. Cold Press (medium) and rough boards contain rag content which lends your artwork a grainy effect. Watercolours look interesting against a Cold Press textured illustration board. Rough boards can enhance the beauty of your charcoal sketches.
