Coloured Pencil on Paper
Happy New Year...here's to a great 2009. Thought I'd kick it off with a new coloured pencil drawing. I don't seem to have done a lot of coloured pencil lately but I do like it, although I still find it frustrating at times. I'm still not sure I've found decent papers for this type of work, so I'm using all sorts and hoping for the best. This was one was done on fairly standard cartridge paper, nothing special but it seems to have turned out ok. I think this year I'll try illustration board, I've heard of sanded paper too but I've never seen it here in the UK. Once I've found the right surface I'll happily stick to it, but I think there's a lot more experimenting to be done before then...
