Lately, I have been really enjoying colored pencils and ever since I got the Spectrum Noir pencils, I have been using them even more, in fact they are always on my desk now and seem to be sharing equal space with my watercolors! Over the last weekend, I did a larger piece to frame where I applied a light wash of watercolor and then completed the entire piece using colored pencils! It did take me a while to complete but am pretty happy with it, considering it was my first attempt at drawing a still life and coloring it with pencils. But doing an entire piece does take a 'lot' of patience which I definitely lack and of course a lot of time. It's not quick and easy like watercolors, especially the way I approach it!
Will share that piece a little later today..till then here is a card where the entire image has been colored with just Spectrum Noir blendable colored pencils and the foreground shadow has been watercolored.
The large image is by Crafter's Companion and here are the deets..
