Portraits on Grafix Drafting Film
are amazingly beautiful! The colors lay
down smoothly on film and the finished product
looks like paint.
These pieces must be matted and framed to protect them.
Portraits done on Stonehenge paper have more texture. Pencil strokes are visible in the finished work.
This type of support must be matted and framed to protect the work.
Ampersand PastelBord has a grainy finish which gives completed work a look much like oil paint.
The advantage of using this support is the finished work is varnished and requires no mat or glass over it.
Watercolor combined with Colored Pencil allows for some interesting textures. The children's clothing and the leaves are done in watercolor with CP details added.
