Thanks so much saphyre!
For those tha might be interested...I have figured out why i was advised that the Bristol Smooth paper may not be the best choice for a very detailed, many multi layered drawing
...it only takes about 6 light layers. Then if you count a burnishing(blending with splendor colorless pencil), it actually will only take about 5 or so. If your layers are "heavy", then that number would be reduced.
Tomorrow i will spray with fixative to see if additional layers are able to be applied. I will let you know.
ALSO, i have learned what is meant by "wax bloom" in CP work. The Kol I Noor pencils i had mentioned i was using in addition to the Rem
andts(the set of these had a few extra colors not in my Rem
andt set), are actually more of the waxy pigment...so the wax will float to the surface of the drawing, causing a grayed out appearance after a few days. To avoid this, you will need to wipe down the drawing(if bloom has occurred), with a tissue or cotton ball, rubbing in direction of strokes. Then spray. Make sure you have blended the previous layers or you will not be able to after fixative.
Here is a bit more i got done today, i am not having much time to work on this at the moment, but hope to finish over the weekend, time permitting.
This is another scan , so the colors are a bit harder looking, i will take another digital after i finish.
I have also learned that for those wanting to try CPs, get the biggest set you can afford, as colors don't "mix", only blending is accomplished. so the more variey of colors the better.
I currently am needing a soft violet, like a grey violet...don't have so trying to make due.
Without further ado-
