Ophelia's Pose by LonnyClouser Ophelia's Pose by LonnyClouser
We were playing around with the camera and Ophelia wanted to pose - this was the best pose out of the bunch!  I love this girl so much ... I think that's evident by the number of times I've drawn her.  I feel like I could drown in her eyes ... 

Used vellum for this drawing and I really found it difficult to erase - it definitely doesn't respond the same way the smooth does.

Details:

Strathmore Bristol Vellum (drawing, excluding large blank area on the left, 5" x 5")
Mechanical, 2H, HB, B, 2B
Tissues, tortillion
Erasers, kneaded and vinyl
Time ~ 16 hours

Very nice, has the feel of a watercolour about it to me which i like a lot. Yes i've been using that paper too and it isn't the least bit cooperative about erasing at all which i've just discovered as well.

Lucky lucky grandkids .. i'm enjoying the challenge of trying to get around this little problem so i'll stick with it a little longer i think :D I've been told that it is a great surface for coloured pencils though but of course i haven't tried any of that.

Hmmm ... I can see that for coloured pencils, lots of tooth to grab the color.

While the texture of vellum is quite different for graphite work, as here it most definitely can have an end result that is quite beautiful.
