My coloured pencil pet portraits are created with professional, archival materials meaning they will last 80+ years if looked after correctly.
The pencils are lightfast so the colours will not fade over time and the paper is acid-free, meaning it’s going to preserve the artwork and give longevity.
I use a few different brands of pencil – my first choice being Faber Castell Polychromos.
I like to experiment with lots of papers to find what works best for me and my style of drawing. Currently I am using Clairefontaine Pastelmat Paper, which comes in many colours and my old faithful Stonehenge Fine Art Paper in white.
