These two sketches were worked on Bristol Vellum. The Bristol paper is in a small 6 x 6 sketch pad and I plan to bind these together in book form when all paper is worked. I had forgotten I had this paper along with all kinds of other sketch pads, blocks, and loose paper (which I really need to start using).
Artificial Dahlias using a mechanical pencil and tortillion to smooth the graphite out.
With the bear I was wanting a little texture striving to achieve a soft feel so I used the 6B on the side of the lead in circular motion.
