  1. Ganz ganz wunderbar, Dirk.
    Bin immer noch begeistert von der Größe. Ist das schwierig zu kaufen / transportieren / aufhängen ? (habe mich noch NIE an sowas Großes gewagt)

  2. Do you prepare your canvas in any way for your pencil work? Are you working on canvas board. Or ? thanks.

    Eigentlich nicht. Bei der Hängung geht dir natürlich etwas schneller der Platz aus.

    I use a Pastel primer for the (normal, stretched) canvas.

  4. hi Dirk
    this is gorgeous especially the way you have captured the individual hairs. Just wondering what brand is your canvas, as I have tried charcoal on canvas board but it doesnt seem to work well.

    Thanks!
    The hair is really easy and very basic, nothing special about it.
    Basically, don't expect charcoal to work on canvas like on paper. You have to work with the surface!

  6. Dirk,

    I love the mood of your drawings, and especially this one. I wish i could sit and watch you work so I could learn from your technique.
