Baxter portrait in progress 2 - moonstone paper

The gold underpainting for Baxter’s coat and purple underpainting for the blanket were done (see previous post), then I pressed the artwork for 48 hours under weights to take out the buckles and ripples in the paper caused by the watercolor. Today I started on Baxter’s ears with colored pencil.

In this close-up you can see the beautiful texture of the “moonstone” Canson paper with it’s visible fibers. The Canson company in France has been making papers for over 500 years!
