I'm so darn excited that I finished my black and white graphite pencil study for "Triad" this week! I feel like I learned so much in the process of doing this study that it was totally worth the time it took.
Time to play with lots and lots of pretty colors. I don't think I can possibly express how much I love my giant set of Prismacolor pencils. When I take the lid off of the box it's like having access to my own private rainbow. They look like a thousand possibilities and smell like hours spent in the art studio.
Here's what I picked....it always surprises me how few green pencils I use when drawing green things. You think something's green, but then you really look at it and it's actually green with burnt ochre shadows, Spanish orange highlights and blue lake reflections.
I'm excited to get started on the color study for this piece so I can figure out how to layer and blend all of these gorgeous pencils!
