Colored pencils

  11x14 graphite and Prismacolor colored pencils on Strathmore 400 series drawing paper. Colored pencils layered over graphite, at the cost of a lot of contrast and detail. Live and learn.

I am self-teaching, too ( I liked the way you said that). By your comment above, I gather you are not happy with this result? When that happens in my experiments (and they are all experiments) -- I either keep the first one and do another, ( so I can see what I've learned) or switch to a different medium and make changes. I recently overpainted an acrylic painting with oil in order to make it more pleasing to me. Hope you feel better! :sweat: :thumbup:

Oh, I experiment a lot too. I made that experiment over two Elvis drawings.. I think it went well. Supracolor pencils and then some watercoloring over it as the Caran d' Ache Supracolor II soft color pencils can be used with watercoloring to give more detail, and their Prismacolor line.
