Original Creation

"View of the Orchard"

parksd02 27 Oct 2021

This was my first professional grade crayon drawing. I used a black Conte Crayon on vellum. This was drawn from a picture I took at a nearby orchard here in my area. This was a blast to draw, and the medium was very economical and easy to blend. The surface I used here was vellum.


This is amazing! Nicely done.

Wow! So very good! Great job!

Beautiful drawing!

Such a wonderful drawing! I will google what vellum is. Never heard this word before.

@Sunnylady Hi there! I hope you are doing well. The closest thing I can compare vellum (or bristol) to is card stock. Sometimes I just need something sturdier than conventional paper.

What an amazing drawing. So realistic. Love it.

superb ... congratulations

Thank you all. I apologize for my delayed response.
