Made a start on a coloured pencil drawing today. I couldn't decide whether to work on black or white paper but in the end I decided on black.
Its going to be A3+ size so the Canson Black Pad I have isn't large enough - annoying when its just a mm or so too narrow for the mount/frame. I found a piece of dark grey/black sanded paper in my paper stock. Its a one-off piece that I ordered from one of the mainstream art suppliers but sadly I didn't keep a note of the brand.
I'm rather disappointed as the grit/sand is easily removed and leaves nasty white spots which are difficult to disguise. I will continue with this picture on Thursday before deciding whether to keep it or scrap it and start again on a white paper.
So this is just a teaser - I've cropped it considerably but can you guess what it is going to be??
