: 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.

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.
