My Sister gave me a set of Polychromo pencils as a gift and I have been experimenting with them, mainly in my little sketch book  :). Its amazing how many techniques there are on how to blend them etc,  :heeha: the mind boggles.

I used Nolans Graphite pencil class template of the Cowboy Hat and Barn  to attempt to do it in the Polychromos.  :)  Its done on Normal cartridge sketch A4 paper.   Believe it or not but there are about 5 different colours blended in the wood and as many in the hat  :heeha:

Oh, new fun toys that you put to good use, Win.

Nice to see how a lesson in one medium can de used to experiment with a different medium.

Thanks for sharing.

Well done, Win! If this is an experiment, I can't wait until you create something that isn't an experiment!!  :clap: :clap:

Win, I looked all over for this drawing and finally found it.  It is fantastic in coloured pencil and you have done a super job.  I remember the lesson in pencil very well and to see it in colour is excellent too.

 :heeha: Wow Win, this beautiful. I love the richness of the color. How do you like the polychromes? I haven't tried them yet but have heard wonderful things about them.

Still catching up on posts!  :run:

This is beautifully done Win.  O0   It really is amazing how many colours and layers go into our drawings and paintings. The result says it all, excellent job Win.  :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, Val

Thankyou Gita KathyS and Val  :thankyou:.

Kathy I am a Graphite and soft pastel fan where its all so much more moveable than colour pencil so I am not too sure I can say how I like them.  Im intrigued with the many processes one can employ with CP so shall reserve my answer until I have more experience with them under my belt  ;) :) :)

Beautiful job Win. You found layering to do the trick - took me a bit to figure that out. What method did you use to blend?

Thanks Barry.  :thankyou:  I like the layering effect.

Blending:     The top 2 planks of wood I used surgical spirits  :2funny: (it actually works quite well on cartridge paper  ;) ) the rest  I used the CPs to blend themselves,   with the layering I found that worked quite well.  :)
