Colored Pencil on Black Canson Paper

This was my first attempt at trying colored pencil with black paper. I did do it once before but it was all done with a white pencil. This time around it was a tad different.

I found Prizmacolor pencils worked best. They didn't 'scratch-up' the preceding layers of colors like my Caran D'Ache's and Derwent pencils did. It was fun and enjoyable playing with something new yet, I'm not too happy with the results. I used Krylon workable fixatif as I usually do to finalizing the color blending and give it a little gloss. But with the pencils I used and the black paper, I had a problem with the black bleeding or showing through which bummed me out as it was the finale step.

Dance like no one is watching
And love like you've never been hurt

Be kind, everyone carries great burdens

This is really nice art work. I have also heard of Faber-Castell Black Paper , for eg in this blog: I would love to try other papers also. I am sure diff paper has diff effects.
