Colored pencil was my media of choice for over twelve years however in a completely different style of art. I can’t part with my colored pencils. Thanks to artists like Veronica Lawlor I am rediscovering colored pencils for sketching.
I always sigh when winter comes. It means people will start wearing drab colors and lots of hoodies! At my most recent trip to Starbucks I sat behind three women in bright colored clothes. I was able to captured them twice.
The first time in ink & watercolor. The splashes of color behind did not really work. Starbucks has an unusual wall hanging. A collage of photos. Next time I will try something different.
The second capture is colored pencil with some collage. This one I do like. I chose not to illustrate the wall hanging. Just an outline of the sections of collage which make up the wall hanging. So now to decide. Do I take colored pencils on my trip or could I do the same thing with my watersoluble colored pencils.
