Re: Derwent Test

I don't like the fuzzy papers ... not sure what pastelmat is like? looking at it just thicker pastel paper? it doesn't let me build enough layers and put light colours cleanly over darks. I'm not keen on either

I like cp on moleskine paper, it works well on that waxy surface though the amount of layers is more limited than with sanded paper. Using a battery eraser to draw back through works really well on this.

whereas this one is watercolour and cp on sanded paper, which makes the pencil almost like pastel in appearance

hope the diffwerence shows

any typos blame the kittens - 2 new lodgers only 13 weeks old and utterly gorgeous but they trample on the keyboard and chase the cursor - which is not helpful
