Colourpencil drawing i made yesterday, of a metallic glaze pitcher. The most difficult part was getting all the colours and patterns right, but also drawing a shadow. On my reference photo, there was no shadow or background, but i think it looks oke.

 :blush: Wow!!! :blush:  Thank you Christina, Zilpa, Sarah, Natalie, Denise, Tania, Bhavna and Nolan for these great and wonderful compliments. :flowers: :hug:    :flowers: I'm just speachless, reading all these lovely and very encouraging comments.
 
After all the graphite i just wanted to do something with colourpencils again. I did last year a little yellow copper can and i liked it a lot and wanted to do some silverwork, this time not with graphite but colourpencils. But i decided to do first this red copper pitcher, i really love the warm and deep colour of it.
Thank you again, for all your great comments  :smitten: :hug: , these are the best 'pushes' one needs to go on and try to improve some other skills than my drawingskills with graphite.
