Here's where I am with my bluebirds in cp.
Watercolour hotpress paper and a mix of cp but mainly polychromos make. About 10 by 8 ins.
I think I'll leave it here and not do a background. Maybe in my next cp, I will incorporate the background.
I am still learning with cp and I wanted to focus on the little birds.
Sorry but the colours did not come out well in this scan. I'll try to photo it later!
I got a couple of blender pencils from Derwent and prismacolour on Amazon. Both very good for belending/softening the edges of forms.
How is everyone else coming along with cps? Do you like using them? I like the control ...and the ability to get representational colour effects by mixing pencils. Plus you can lay it aside if you get interrupted by the phone or doorbell...not so easy to stop when using paint!
I am scared to go too dark with cp, however...in case I mess up. Maybe I will work up to that!
