The Winners

First Place Winner

by M. Jaganath

“I’m using Strathmore Drawing 400 series (8×10″) and Canvas paper 300 series, for more than a year. I’m using this product to get better result for portrait, landscape; fine architect building sketch. The experience with Strathmore product is really awesome, it gives good texture, smoothness and shading/rendering and it’s really supports using my H and B graphite, obviously charcoal pencil as well. I will recommend this Strathmore product to the audiences, would definitely rejoice with the results. I uploaded my favorite sketch with linear perspective method which took me more than 20 hours but ends with tremendous output which I like the most. thanks to Strathmore and the crew members who build this product.

“Strathmore is the only paper I use. I love the 400 series as well as the Bristol smooth. I have a popular Instagram account with over 220,000 followers where I share my art and every time someone asks me what paper I use, I always tell them Strathmore.

“I am 8 years old and did this picture on Strathmore watercolor paper using ink, pencils for the background and branches and color pencils for the the bird. I really like how the paper makes the colors pop from both the dry and wet pencils. This is one of my favorite pictures that I did recently and hope you like it too…My mom says she loves the Strathmore paper quality and won’t let me use any other kind. And I think she is right!”
