Coloured Pencil

Well here I am again 3 years down the line ........... phew it's been hard ...... :)

Why here and now ...... well I have just joined the UKCPS (UK Coloured Pencil Society) and it seems it helps if you have your own blog ......... so in the depths of my mind I remembered I started this years ago then left it so here we go.

Due to a recent illness and a couple of stays in hospital I found my first love watercolour, a little difficult to continue with so thought I'd try something new and so blew the dust off a set of coloured pencils that had been in the drawer for years.

I purchased a book by Gary Greene and one by Lee Hammond and did the exercises, layering and burnishing curves, apples and pears. Drew noses, ears lips and hair and so now feel ready to explore .......... above is the towel exercise I did from Lee Hammonds book ........... may frame this one for the bathroom.
