Go Fly a Kite by JD-Hillberry Go Fly a Kite by JD-Hillberry
I just finished another trompe l'oeil drawing. Everything you see here is drawn. Charcoal for the background, carbon pencils for the tape, and graphite for the wrinkles in the paper. Size: 11x14

During their time together in Arles Gauguin bought a bale of jute from which both artists used for their canvases. This coarse material caused them both to apply the paint more thickly and to use heavier brush strokes.-3850 N. Powerline Road Deerfield Beach, FL 33073

im using JD hillberry as my school art final exam piece, it means i have to study techniques used by a famous artist and make my own piece that is done with the techniques, i was just wondering what pencils and tools you use

Sorry it has taken me so long to get back to you. I've been conducting drawing workshops down in Houston, TX (I'm in Colorado) You can see the pencils and techniques I use on my website [link]
