Post by: BeaSue on January 24, 2016, 04:54:07 AM
I found this very interesting and plan to give it a try:

(I have my next CP exercise all sketched out and ready to go, but am taking a pause while I work on a new watercolor painting. More later!)

 :thankyou: BeaSue.

It was a good article. I've bookmarked the site.

Eventually I want to try my hand at colored pencil. But right now I'll stick to graphite until I build a solid foundation.

You're work with the colored pencil is really nice. Keep at it. I look forward to seeing more.
