Colouring practice

This summer has been too hot to spend upstairs in my scrapbook room.  Even with the air cranked, the sun beats in and it's just sweltering!  Luckily it's easy to sit with my markers in front of the TV.  Even though no projects have been created, I've been busy colouring.  Here are some of my latest copic colourings!

Learning to use Pencils

Well, I have to admit, when I bought my set of Polychromos I expected I'd play for an hour or two and have it mastered.  I thought the transition from markers to pencils would be seamless.  Not the case!!!  Even with the help of the Kit and Clowder Perfecting Pencils class I've found it to be a struggle.  The concepts of how to create colour and blending are totally different.  But of course, there are universal concepts like light and shadow that stay the same.

At first I wasn't at all keen in posting my pencil work.  However, I look forward to learning more, practicing more, and coming back to these posts to appreciate how far I've come.  So here are a couple of my first images!
