I finally tried to do an actual CP piece -- a still life from a photo. The subject may be recognizable from one of the WC WDEs, but I no longer have a copy of the ref. photo. I remember the ref being very muted in color, so I was light-handed with the CPs. I used Prismacolor CPs in a Strathmore sketchbook. I was actually very pleased that it looks like something!!! This kind of piece is way outside my comfort zone. I'm thinking that paper isn't the best though. What paper/base do you use for CPs?
