Toned Paper!

... Also several years ago, I started sketching and drawing on toned paper. I was surprised at how much fun it was and how much quicker I could put down an idea on paper. Working in both dark and light Prismacolor pencil on a toned base is also a great way to practice with values. I have a stack of these on my desk at work about an inch thick. Each one is done gradually, during breaks at work, and usually takes me about a week to complete. This is the latest one I've done. I finished it a couple of weeks ago.

Sorry -old art.
This is still one of my favorite sketches from the past.
