Incredible work.  Wow.  When you have time, we'd also love to see some of your oils and acrylics. You are soooo very talented.
I just spent an hour 'playing' on the colored pencil site. My goodness....what awesome works.
Thank you, Andre, for sharing this with us.

 Just as in  watercolor, the age old question of paper now raises its head. . . what is the best paper for colored pencils?
 Very smooth. . . such as Bristol Board? Rather smooth. . . . such as hot press watercolour paper? And on and on.
 I know the answer will probably "it depends", but perhaps there is one paper that is "better" than the others, especially for a beginner.
 

Since I`m not sure what I should be looking for in the various stages of the colouring process, I cannot yet tell what paper is going to give me the results I want.
 
Bristol Board seems to fill up with colour too soon . . . is this possible?

Hey Zac. . . . I don't know a lot but from what I have read, Faber-Castell Polychromos  are the best of the best. I like the Derwent Coloursoft for some things and for other things I like the Prismacolors.
Waiting until I win the Lotto to buy the 120 Polychromos' in a wooden box for $638 and change.  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Wow, Roxy! You are mastering those colored pencils quickly!!! The petals are gorgeous. Really shining. Of course, it is a Sweetheart Sarag, so how could it be otherwise? The Baltic part? Don't know about that. Keep it up. I love colored pencil botanicals. They can be so luminous.

Thank you Patricia. . . this was my very first attempt to use colored pencils and they are harder than they look!
The color of the flower was what caught my attention, it's not quite right here, and of course the name. . .
I am continuing with cp's as well as watercolour and graphite, all keeping me busy but not letting me get any one thing done!! You know. . . jack of all trades :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:
 
Oh Val. . . trust you to find the typo. . . . . :2funny:
 
Thank you Sarah, and pay no attention to "you know who". . . . She just lives to find mistakes! :2funny: I know that for a fact. . . she always finds ALL of mine!!!
