Beach Cove

Here's my latest vellum piece. This will probably be the last one I get to add to my portfolio, since it's almost done and ready to send out....finally! If you look in the background, you'll see the "Fishing Wharf" you might remember from one of my earlier posts. I added the line-drawing and will post a few of my preliminary sketches tomorrow, to show the work in progress. Any feedback and critique is of course much apprciated, thanks.

Hello Hans,

I certainly hope it's not your last one. It seems to be a medium that you are utilizing very well. It is nice to see the line drawing as well as the rendered vellum piece. It looks good. I like the reflected spark that you added to the fishing warf. It helps draw the attention back to it after the initial draw of the cove itself. Yet again good work Hans. Keep it up.

Hey gang,

I'm thrilled that so many great people and artists are visiting my blog. It's the ultimate motivation for me and I can't thank you enough for all the kind words and support you give me. It's worth more than any paycheck! I also wanna thank you all for the inspiration you've provided me with through your blogs. Blogging is a wonderful thing!:)

Thanks again,


Ken: Pretty much all the black and white pieces I've posted on my blog is done with black prismacolor pencil on vellum. I sometimes finetune it in PS, inforcing highlights etc.

Hey, so much great work! You're portfolio must be stunning. Could you be so kind to explain what "prismacolor on vellum" is? How does it work - why is it so great? I too want to learn new techniques. (:

Hey Muffin;)

Sorry if it's a little delayed, but I just now saw your kind comments on one of my posts. What is prismacolor on vellum? The pencil I use is a black pencil of the brand "Prismacolor" which you should be able to purchase at any art supply store. The "paper" is called vellum, which is almost transparent and have a very smooth surface, which makes it easy to blend the pencil with blending stubs. After you made the linedrawing and am ready to do some shading, you just lightly brush the desired areas with your pencil and smudge it with blending stubs. In that way you can create some really nice and smooth tones. The vellum I use is called Clearprint 100% new cotton fiber Design Vellum....whew a bit long I know! Anyhow, you should also be able to get that at any art supply store.

Good luck with everything:)


P.s. I like your illustrations, put up some more of those!
