Colored Pencil Project #2

The second lesson of three is a pair of little shoes. I'm presenting a few pictures to show the process.

The big lesson here was to realize how many variations of color can be gain from one pencil by using pressure.

Layering was achieved by using a second color, but trying to apply the same pressure as in the first stage.

This picture and the final are very close. I just wanted you to see the difference in the tiles as the ones on the left have the final layer. Certainly more punch than the ones on the left.

Ta-da, I'm done! OK, the top left tiles are "wrong". Hey, I can have a senior moment:)

Thanks for your informative comments. The next post will show you the last project and a color chart that I created. I learned that I had a lot of pencils, both Prismacolor and Lyra. The companies must love me:)

Hi Sandra: I love seeing the progress of this piece. Terrific final art work. Hate to admit this but I can't see what's "wrong" with the top left tiles (I guess I'm having a major senior moment ;)

Wrong?! There is no wrong. Only "interesting". Right is often boring, and I love how the tile turns down. Love these!!

I'm catching up with my favorite blogs, and yours is just as wonderful as ever! I love these little shoes and your sharing the process with us. They turned out just right! Also, your Christmas postcards, the quilt you made for the wounded soldier, your mandala, and the watercolor sheet of zentangles are great! Happy New Year, and please keep sharing your wonderful art with us. nancy

These are awesome. I thought I had commented when you posted this but I guess I read your blog on my phone and I don't like writing there. Anyway, really good stuff! Perfect drawing of the tiny shoes.
