. I can comment on your artwork -wow the colour blue you have achieved on those two is gorgeous, what colours did you use? and I really like the dynamism of the composition but I find the position of the bottom bird a little confusing, I think it may be because you need a little more prominent shading so the two positions of their beaks shows up more. If that makes any sense is it possible for you to alter this piece?
Other than that it is an excellent piece.
So far I LOVE CP! It seems I can complete a piece much faster than when I paint in acrylic or watercolor, or even graphite pencil. This particular piece is 9X12 and I use Prismacolor Premier. I also used a little baby oil on a Q-tip to achieve a painted look but have gone to mineral spirits which I prefer. I used, I think, all the blues Prismacolor makes
and I very much agree with you on the positions of their beaks, and so appreciate your advice, thank you! As far as altering the piece, I used fixative already and afraid to try to make corrections at this point. Oh, I used Strathomore Bristol, but I turn the paper over to the most smooth I can get. Since I'm so new at this I would love to know what the best paper, and pencils there are out there. I bought some large black and white sheets of Stonehenge and then I cut them into 4 sheets, (get the most for the money) since I really don't think I'll ever draw anything that large.
Again, thank you so much for your comments
