"Prickly Pear Bloom" - 13" x 18"

I just got this image back from being photographed. I am pretty happy with the way it turned out. I had tried a new paper for this drawing - it was a Strathmore bristol illustration board. It was OK, but.........

I still like my 300 lb, HP, bright white, Fabriano watercolor paper the best. I like trying new papers now and then, hoping I'll fall madly in love with one. I really like the whiteness and smoothness of illustration boards but can't seem to get as dark as I can with the watercolor paper. I like good contrast, and I have no problem getting it with the Fabriano 300 lb hp paper.

Till next time!
