I've just got interested in coloured pencils and have made a start with a few books and videos. Here are some pics of what I have been doing.
Please excuse the camera distortion.

Well done Ray.  Excellent job done here.  What type did you use Derwent?   
Kindest regards

Ray,

These are so well done.   The grain in the wood is amazing.  The mango is so lifelike.

Hard to believe it's colored pencil.


Great work.

Wonderful job, Ray. They are amazing and so lovely. You take a "shine" very well to colored pencil art!!  They are excellent, and it looks like you really enjoyed doing them.

 :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: O0 O0 O0 O0  Wow, Ray, I have just seen your coloured pencil work which has blown me away.  They are EXCELLENT!!  I quite enjoy coloured pencils although my wrists get sore if I spend too much time on them but I must say that your work is smashing!!!  I use the Prismacolour pencils too although I have just purchased some Derwent too.  Have you had a look at Dupart's work on the forum.  Also excellent.
