  1. I either work in a sketchbook or paper taped to Masonite. The only real piece of artwork I've done so far is a portrait of our late yellow lab, Summer. Nailed it the first try working from a photo. I have learned a lot more since then. Mine now looks so very " childish" to me. I am amazed by so much of the work I see in this medium.

  2. I like the results with colored pencil on smooth surface Bristol paper.

  3. Sketch book stock or parchment.

  4. Sketch book stock or parchment.

  5. Sketch book stock or parchment.

  6. Lynn Welton. My go to is a 9x12 drawing pad because of its convenient size.

  7. I don't know yet. Been trying different types with different pencils.

  8. Although I love to try new paper all the time, so far, my favorite is still black Stonehenge paper.

  9. My favorite for the time being is Bristol Vellum, but am eager to try Fabriano Artistico Hot Pressed watercolor paper that has been given great reviews by CP artists.
