    I thought they looked like mezzotint – certainly the feeling while working was similar. Perfect pencil numer 2, Kyle Brushes. Poses from NewMastersAcademy youtube channel.

    Here’s a look at the process for the third illustration in the series, and the first one I did – The Young Prince and Princess. I started by listening to the music, reading about the piece and gathering the documentation. You can find most of the references in my folder on the Rijks Museum online…
