  1. Beautiful niece and a fabulous drawing. Good luck with your entry.

    Seeing the photograph with you working at the easel shows just how big this drawing is - a mammoth undertaking!

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous! Really impressive :) I was wondering what type of canvas do you buy? Fine grain? Or is a special type of canvas??? That's how good your art is! I can't even tell the difference!!! :D

    1. Hi Chloe, Thank you! I just use plain paper actually...it needs to be fairly thick and with a smooth surface. I like Winsor & Newton heavy weight cartridge paper, but this drawng was made on paper that doesn't have a particular brand.
