Paper study

Trying out different papers for sketchbook binding. I've been using, almost exclusively, Fabriano Artistico 90lb watercolor paper for binding my sketchbooks but wanted to try some other papers. This is Rives BFK, a printmaking paper. I didn't expect it would work that well but heard another artists say he used it in his sketchbooks. It's a bit soft and I wouldn't want to try to do any erasing on it but it worked ok for a quick ink and wash drawing.

Apologies to the model for making her appear cross-eyed.
