I'm a very methodical person. As I'm working on children's book illustrations now and still has not decided on technique for it I have bought samples of several different papers and am playing with them.
This was 2-ply Vellum paper. Pencils go on it very smoothly but texture of paper still can be seen. It is something silicon-ish for me in this paper.
The costume was inspired by lovely children from Kate Greenaway's books.
