He's a good man and a dear friend. He's a very gentle and spiritual man and was involved in the civil rights movement in the 60s. It was a commissioned piece and he loved it. Thanks for the fave and your comments.

I just read your profile. I moved to Fort Wayne, IN about 7 years ago from Louisville but do not consider myself a Hoosier. Cheers!

Thank you! I use Canson Plate / Smooth Bristol paper. It comes in a tablet of 15 sheets. You can get it on-line the cheapest and it comes in different sizes. I prefer 19" x 24".

Thanks, I don't believe I've tried Canson yet. I've been using Strathmore Bristol Vellum- it has a great texture and is quite forgiving of mistakes- but I'm starting to feel as if it may have more texture than I really want. I'm searching for new papers to try that other graphite artists have had success with (especially in achieving realism).

I think you'll like the Canson. I tried the Strathmore but found it too grainy for high detail work. I've been using Canson for about 4 years now and really love it. Make sure it's the plate smooth bristol.

Thank you! I love to progress you've shown on your page. Isn't it amazing how much we learn by viewing others' works! I just got back into drawing a few years ago after giving it up for 20 years to raise a family and feel like I've come a long way since my first piece 6 years ago.
