 If you know me, you know that I love brown paper. For the longest time I searched for heavy brown paper, not the usual kraft paper, but darker and much heavier. One day, my prayers were answered when I found it at Curry's Art supplies. It's scanning as greyish, but it really is brown.

I tried painting on it with black gouache.

It made me very, very happy!

    You can buy rolls of brown paper at home depot. You use it for putting on the floor when you are painting walls etc. very economical and very substantial paper.
