Studio Buddy

It's been a while since I have posted a picture of my studio buddy.  He hates having his picture taken, but he gets along really well with my studio dragon :)

To solvent or not...

Before using solvent

After using solvent
Another view of my latest project. I wanted to show the difference when using solvent with colored pencils.

The solvent I use is "Mona Lisa Odorless Paint Thinner." You still need a good amount of CP pigment on the paper before you can use it. Experiment first on a small area, if you are not sure if the amount of pigment on your paper is enough. The nice thing with solvent is that you can work on top of it either while it's still wet, or after it has dried.
