Charcoal and pastel on black paper. This is the train depot at Poplar Bluff, MO. This is my first attempt at using black paper. After I sprayed it with a fixative the picture did not seem as bright but when I scanned it the brightness showed through. The actual picture is still not as visible as the scanned one on the computer. Anyone ever had this problem and what can I do short of making prints and hiding the original.
