This is great. I Love it.
Looks great! I can’t even imagine how long that took. I’d have given up after the squirrel. I’m too impatient to try anything that size yet, definitely not until I’m more confident.
Very nice! What did you use to draw on? Canvas, paper…? Love the presentation.
Hi Dottie. I used 19 X 24 Strathmore Bristol. Very smooth
Thank you! I use Toned Strathmore paper and hadn’t really thought about Bristol. Just ordered some for my next project.
Good. I just love working on Bristol.
The Vellum finish bristol is very common for colored pencil. The smooth I haven’t heard too much about but cannot argue with the amazing results above!
There’s also a vellum card stock that a lot of people like for practicing colored pencils saying it has very good tooth and is quite affordable:
Here’s another link for a different brand of similar paper since the one above was sold out most of the time.
This is the one I tried and will warn you: It bleeds with ink into fuzzy lines so best to stick with colored pencil I guess.
The Bristol I used wasn’t vellum. Thanks.
