This is a tedious painting because it’s painted on drafting linen,
a type of paper that architects use to print out plans. I got this from my husband, who is an architect (lucky me!)
Why linen paper? Well, I’m being ambitious, wanna try coloured pencil on canvas, how about that? So dear hubby said, why not practice on linen paper first? (So sweet of him) So here goes my “experimental” piece. Not too bad, I say!
Instead of using Derwent cp, this time I used solely Faber-Castell polychromos. Their cp colours are super vibrant and are oil based. The texture is creamier and have a slight gloss finish look. And another thing that I like about FC is that they don’t easily break.
I used measuring cups to draw the circle, yup! the measuring cup for baking (another hobby of mine) as they have different sizes.
