Colored Pencils

I  recently downloaded a bunch of art workshops that were offered for $5 apiece for one day only from Northlight Books.   I'm so glad I opened their  email that morning, because these are great.   Watercolor, mixedmedia,, colored pencil, gouache, and drawing workshops.   Expensive ones too, but just $5.     The first one I watched was on colored pencils.    I had recently taken part in a Webinar on Colored Pencils and it left a lot to be desired in instruction and this answered many of my questions.      So, last night I opened a  new package of pencils and tried them on some black  paper.      Lulu was sitting on my foot stool, posing, so I just had to sketch her.    I'm going to enjoy more of this pass time as it packs well and does not take a lot of room.
