Happy Spring!

Hi all,
I wanted to update you with a little piece of colored pencil work that I'm almost finished with. It's a Lilac Breasted Roller, famous in Africa I'm sure, for it's gorgeous colors!  

This is the first time I've worked on  a colored pencil drawing with Caran d'Ache Luminance Colored Pencils. I must say, I like them. They are a bit difficult to sharpen, as they are very soft. I couldn't get a really sharp point with my battery operated sharpener, and my electric sharpener is a bit too small for the width of the pencil tip. I would suggest an x-acto knife.

I am working on a brownish Canson paper on the smooth side. I still am going to add background details, hopefully this week!

My tip in colored Pencil Magazine

I was honored to be contacted by the creators of "Colored Pencil" magazine, to see if I would allow them to publish my new technique for using colored pencil. Of course I said yes!. Here is the cover and the article. You can purchase their magazine at coloredpencilmag.com. You can also see my original tips on my other blog http://coloredpenciltips.blogspot.com/. Happy dance!
