Anyone know where I can buy cheap beige paper in large amounts?

Everything I'm seeing is just really expensive high quality sketch books. I'm just looking for something cheap that I can do a lot of sketching on that is some kind of beige color that I can use white on.

Packages from amazon have tons of brown packing paper in it.

buy them in rolls, its more expensive initially but better value, and you can cut to size^^

hmm, weird, where i live you can buy some paper sheets binded together for like 0.60$ (i dont live in the us). we call it "grey" paper but the color is beige. the paper quality is of course not amazing but it makes for a very nice sketchbook.

white paper.
tie dye.. dye. paint it on, let er' dry.
can also boil water add dye and soak plastic in it. popular with RC car enthusiasts who customize rims/spoilers to match custom paint jobs.

if you don't mind brown paper you can that at home depot in a 1,000ft roll for under a $100.

Do what Turner used to do, and cover it in a watercolour wash?

newsprint
try to see if you have a small press somewhere in your city, you might grab large amounts of paper for cheap

try looking for postal wrapping paper, usually in stock at art supply places or moving/packaging places. a 75 foot roll is only a few bucks

not beige but you get the idea

This is a good option. The color of the paper is a little lighter than what you see on the page. The image is just to see how the whites stand out. With the paper in front, the contrast is much greater.

you can always buy some cheap printer paper and some cheap acrylic brown, mix some with water on a plate, wash papers in it and hang them dry
