VSD_FEB2009

This is the Virtual Sketch Date for February. The original photo is by Debbie Later. I have been watching all the ones uploaded and they are wonderful!
My Sketch is done mainly in Prismacolor Colored Pencils. I also used some Derwent Colored Pencils. Both of these brands are very creamy. I find if I keep sharp blades in my battery operated and hand held sharpeners. I have little or no breakage. Thank-you for asking about the media. All I did to the photo was crop. It came out very well for iPhone.

Thank-you for the comment.
This is Prismacolor Pencils, and Derwent Colored Pencils. I like both brands and enjoy using them very much.

This is lovely, but I find the image too small to see well.

I was tempted to do this VSD but just didn't seem to have the time.

Thanks for the comments on my blog.

I've never gotten the hang of using coloured pencils. This is very lovely!

Have you been working in your new sketchbook?

Cheers

This is really wonderful, Sherrie. I love your bold use of texture and the softness of some of the colours. The whole composition is nicely balanced.

Thanks for your 'Well Wishes' on my site today. It's nice to have friends like you who care ;)
