    This is beautiful. I’ve never tried working on bristol board…maybe I’ll have a go.

  • Thanks Kratos for the wonderful comment….I pretty much have worked with bristol board for the past 15 years or so when I do my pencil work….I also like using a hot press Illustration board for graphite work…but for color pencil I have found that the texture in the bristol works really well in shading and blending the colours

    Such a simple yet striking image.
    Tho I guess it wasn’t that simple to draw.Lee.
