A Sturdy and Stable Work Surface For Your Art
If you have ever had your paper or pad slip out of your hand or fall and ruin your sketch, a drawing board might well be the thing that you have been looking. One of these drawing boards will stop you from making any unnecessary slips in your artwork or sketch because it will provide a stable and reliable base. Drawing boards do not only mean that you will be less likely to slip and make an unwanted mark, but they will also protect the paper you are using from getting tears and creases.
Advantages of Using Artist Drawing Boards
Plus, with a softer or uneven surface below your paper, you are much more likely to pierce the paper with your pen. With a drawing board, however, you will have a hard surface below the paper, meaning that the pen, pencil, or whatever implement you are using, will glide over the surface. This will also mean you can draw with a greater sense of freedom and control. Other advantages of using drawing boards include having clips at the top which secures your paper to the board. This isn't just about stopping the paper from falling off. It also means that you can rotate the board as you please and find different angles to approach your drawing from. There are some designs which even have a band at the bottom too. Great for breezy days.
Wide Range of Styles & Sizes
Take a look through the full range and pick out the right fit and size for you. Some of the boards are designed so that they sit comfortably on your lap. This means that you can settle down on the sofa and sketch away. Other designs are made so that they can be attached to your shoulders via a strap. These boards then hang down at a perfect angle so that you can draw while you are out and about en plein air.
