I used coquille paper cold press 2ply 22×30 ..it is my favorite paper …it has a stiple surface so has no surprises…it is a big part of the effect I want…it takes graphite well. Also when using led you don’t pick up a shine.
I used graphite for the drawing ..pencils from 2H.to 9B ..I work from left to right and never cross my work once finished to prevent smudging .I apply in layers never pressing on my paper ..Spray lightly with hairspray mist. being sure not to get it wet or you can get tiny islands on your paper giving it a harsher look….I like a soft look…
This is a picture of my sister-in-law Lois..and her husband Dave…she left some pictures at my place and I took it as a hint that she wanted me to do something with them… so this was a Christmas gift. They loved it..
