A stack of papers.

Paper is a thin, flat material made of cellulose pulp or other fibrous materials. Paper is used for writing, printing, and drawing. Paper comes in many different weights (thicknesses), sizes, textures and colors, but most paper is white, and usually cut in rectangular form.

Paper and spanking artEdit

Paper, which is nowadays available at low cost and in high quality, is a preferred choice for any kind of drawing, such as drawing with charcoal, ink, pencils, crayons, or markers.

Since the 1980s, drawings are often drawn on paper and then scanned for further digital image editing. It is also possible to draw directly in digital, e.g. with a graphics tablet, but many artists still favor paper for their original pencil or inked (line art) drawings.
