EDM #33


I found a tutorial I'd been meaning to do a long time ago. I also decided that if I really want to do any art, I'll have to make time to even though I'm usually exhausted after work and kid. So I woke about 12:30 the other night and started on the bird. Still have more to do to finish him up. I couldn't find the "right" blue to use. I think the blue I've used is a little garish :(.

Your bird is just beautiful! I have a set of Prismacolors, and Faber Castell Polychromos. The Prismacolor is the really nice creamy texture the polychromos are stiff like the Prismacolor thin pencils. I just love mine. I am sure you will work it all out.
I always alert Prismacolor when a pencil does not perform to my expectations.

Oh Leona! This is beautiful!
You know, you can "mix" colored pencil by layering. But try some test swatches first.
I hope you'll do more colored pencil drawings!!

Stunning!!! What texture! I love the color, not garish at all!!!!

Both the bird and the eye are beautiful! Thanks to you (and my dictionary) I've learnt a new word - garish - so I can say no, the bird's color isn't garish at all! It's great and has a nice light.

Leona - you did a fantastic job! Aren't Heron's just the coolest?! You could try toning down the blue with a slight brown or gray but definitely try it on a piece of scrap paper first...
