In Memory of Molly... by Artsy50 In Memory of Molly... by Artsy50
In loving memory of my neighbor's beloved Golden Retriever, Molly. A sweet, friendly, beautiful dog who loved everyone. She may have barked a bit too much, but she was a good dog, and a good friend. She will be missed. :( RIP Molly.

For my neighbor Lisa who struggled with the decision to have her friend put down yesterday. She's in a better place now Lisa. :hug: :heart:

8 x 10. Colored pencil on Canson paper. With a bit of Black and white Sharpie paint pen.

Thanks for your faves and comments. :)

I think they are often missed for a longer time than we miss some humans, not playing down any losses you have had

Love this..
I'm just wondering what kind of Canson paper do you use? I am a relatively new artist, and haven't used anything besides my sketchbook. Also where do you get it from?
And finally what kind of colored pencils do you use?

Sorry to be a bother! I just love your style.

Thank you kindly. :D Glad to help.

The Canson paper I use is sold in single sheets in various colors. It's called..., and I'm just reading this on the sticker that's on the paper...Mi-Teintes, which I think means tinted or colored paper. It's made in France. It's a 98 lb. weight, acid free paper, and comes in different sizes I think. The one I use most is 8 1/2 inch by 11 inch, but I have bought it in a much bigger size. It's not too pricey either. I also use other Canson Mixed media paper that comes in sketchbook form, also 98 lb. weight, white.

As for the colored pencils I use, their are several brands. I use the regular Laurentien brand, and Laurentien Studio brand. Derwent, are good quality. Some are softer than others. The Derwent drawing pencils are quite soft and you can get them in a kit with several colors. I have some Prismacolor pencils but they tend to break quite a bit and it's really quite frustrating. My daughter tells me though that you can place them in the microwave for a few seconds to melt the leads together again. I haven't tried this yet though. ;P I also have some woodless Koh-I-Noor progresso pencils that are quite nice. They come in sets as well and won't break your bank when you can find them on sale.

I get most of my supplies at Curry's Art Store, and some at De Serres Art store. But If you keep your eyes open you can come across some deals at liquidation places and Walmart will at least carry Laurentien brands. A little piece of advice, try not to drop your colored pencils or you will be cursing every time you try to sharpen them. ;P I remember buying a package of Laurentiens at Walmart once, got them home, sharpened them, and they were all breaking. Luckily Walmart let me exchange them.

Hope that's helpful. :D Not sure if you've seen it or not, but I did do a colored pencil tutorial recently that's in my gallery if you'd like to take a peek. Feel free to ask me any other questions and I'll try to help if I can.

Awesome! This helps me so much. I have been slowly buying art supplies as it goes on sale, but have been having a hard time finding the right paper. And it's always wonderful to get somebody else's feedback.

Thanks again! Really appreciate it.

Just thought I'd let you know I found some of the Canson Bristol paper for drawing and I love it! Thanks again for the recommendation!
