Is black paper a good choice for colored pencils? I’m sharing some of the pros and cons and tips for working on this type of surface. I’ve got tips on blending with odorless mineral spirits (OMS) and the types of pencils I like best for this sort of work. Join me while I draw my pelican!
I’m working on Canson Conservation Board which I purchased from dickblick.com. If you do a search for Canson Mi-teintes art boards it will be listed there with those.
