Finished the wee chap.
Spent quite a while trying to get his light coat to scan well...unfortunately I was not terribly successful.
The result is nevertheless presentable and it is with great pleasure that I would like to introduce "Puppies & Wellies".
The added beauty of this piece is that it is drawn using Derwent pencils which are ...vegan pencils!
Vegan pencils….my amazing discovery last week-end...
Thanks to Empty Easels' post I discovered that Derwent does not use beeswax in any of their products. I quote:
Their charcoal pencils are made from pure charcoal, clay and pigment, the wax used in their pencils is from a plant source, and the binding material is from a mineral source.
Derwent’s Coloursoft pencils, Graphitint pencils, Aquatone pencils, metallic pencils, graphitone and even Derwent’s Pastel Blocks are free from animal ingredients.
(I have contacted Derwent asking them for more information. Have got to double check this grand news.)
I am not a vegan (or vegetarian) but somehow it feels good and snuggles in nicely with what I feel is right...
