The Trio – Finished


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:
