A Single Blade of Grass by anniecanjump A Single Blade of Grass by anniecanjump
8x10 on pale yellow Mi-Teintes paper. Done with Prismacolor colored pencils. White acrylic for the whiskers.

Kittens find the most simple things in life interesting, we humans could learn something from the animals.

I did it the other way around :D I used to work with coloured paper and then started to use white cotton. I've recently bought coloured cotton (althought there aren't as many colours as for Canson Mi-teintes, unfortunately)and started making drawings on black and cream coloured paper. I wish there were more colours available in cotton. I stopped using the Canson paper because I didn't think it was smooth and thick enough....

I am still not sold on the colored paper but I do like it's effects. It gives a tone to the whole picture that you don't get with white paper. I still so love my white Robert Bateman series paper though and will always use it. It is perfect for my style either using colored pencils or graphite.

I wish Stonehenge cotton would come in some nice and bright colours, instead I just have black, cream and white. I do like the fact that Canson has so many colours, I just really love the smoothness and thickness of cotton :heart: but I do miss all the different colours... I sometimes still use white cotton, but lately I've almost exclusively drawn on cream and fawn coloured cotton, I like that you can for example just draw the whiskers instead of having to add them later with a white gelpen.

Thanks, it was my first one on colored paper so a bit of a struggle to get the colors right but I am pleased with the result. I like that the whole painting has a warm tone to it, very fitting for the subject.
