This week I decided to have a play with my colour pencils. This is drawn on A4 (21 x 29 cm) but looking back, next time I will do an A3 (29 x 42cm). Its drawn with the derwent studios as well as the prismacolor black, white, crimson, one of the greys and the colourless blender. I have used the burnishing technique for the whole drawing.

After looking at all the wonderful work being done over at WetCanvas this weekend, I was inspired to get out my graphite drawing pencils and experiment. I made one of the images black and white, adjusted the lighting and contrast a bit and printed it out to use as my reference. Then I used a light box to get an outline and just filled in the tones with graphite. I was pretty pleased with the outcome and will try this again sometime on something else.
