I’m giving the graphite a little rest and working on Canson Mi-Teintes, nicely textured black paper with a white charcoal pencil.
I’ve no idea what this is about, except that my garden pig plays a starring role;)

I’m a new visitor to your blog (and just commented on a different post), but see that I have been missing out! I’m completely drawn into this drawing. I love the depth and dimension of this drawing, and the movement, but the pig’s expression, so direct and knowing, is so wonderfully captured: I just know he has something to tell us!
You are astute! This is a portrait of my garden pig (plastic garden pig). He’s lived in my garden for many years and evokes all sorts of feelings depending on the time of day or night. Thanks so much for visiting!
Canson makes some of my favorite artist papers! It seems unique to the brand to be able to achieve that look with just a pencil of sorts. Great sketching. You have a knock-out blog going on here – I have enjoyed combing through it.
Thanks Mike! Yes, there doesn’t seem to be another paper quite like the Canson texture. So glad you visited!
thanks much 🙂
Lovely work. It’s amazing how different and whimsical it looks when you switch the colours of the charcoal and the background around. Love the effect and the images are wonderfully drawn
Yes, going negative this time, really changes it up:) Thanks you.
Lovely drawing. I love how the white charcoal works with the black paper. You have a great imagination.
I like working with the black paper for a change. Thanks Kellie:)
Lovely drawing work! Unusual gathering of animals, too!
Thanks..yeah, they just show up.
For future reference, “:)” = I just LOVE this!
I can tell I’m going to be using this a lot with these posts, i will try to come up with something new to say, once in a while… 😉
Love your work!!! Such an ease and flow to the lines, just wonderful as is the subject matter! Also really like the look of the white charcoal!
Thank you! Yeah, the white charcoal is a joy to play with.
They are amazingly so lovely… I loved it dear Elena, Thank you, with my love, nia
You are a sweetie Nia, thank you:)
If pigs could swim ……
Very nice! (I think I have to start thinking of some new adjectives!!)
Will you share them when you find them? I could certainly use some help there!
