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!
