As predicted, I finished “The Trio” on Monday afternoon. Details: 11×14 Stonehenge paper. Prismacolor and Luminance colored pencils.
What I learned while working on this piece:
1. That tracing paper does not serve as a good barrier between the hand and paper. I used it to try to prevent smudging. It actually created quite a bit of smudging.
2. I love the Prismacolor pencil “Black Grape.” It is what I used for the final layer on the background. The background is actually composed of several different layers of color: indigo blue, violet, sky blue and black grape.
3. Fantastix are great color blenders. They are cheapest when bought in a bucket on Amazon.com:
