How very cool! I love how its long wings cross at the bottom of its back, beautiful eye, awesome painting! Love your subtle color shifts, thought it was all tone till the second look.

Beautiful! How do you find the derwent paper? Is this their new stuff (I think it's almost a sanded paper) or is there pastel paper which is smoother on one side and is literally just paper? Sorry for the questions, I love fine detail which it seems you do too and I wanted to try the new derwent papert but not found anyone who has found it good yet!

Thank you, this paper is not new, it has long been present in the market. Texture she had no sand, and smooth on both sides equally. It is similar to Derwent Skeching paper, only gray. The quality is quite good, but can not stand a lot of layers, pastel starts to slide. And with light shades a bit difficult, they are not very well cover the color of the paper. But overall impression of her is good for its price
