Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

Finished - I think. Going to put it away and might tweak a little before the mail out date, still have to sign it. Had some struggles - but it was a good experience as I learned a lot. Looking forward to the mail out date, can't wait to see everyone's work - will be fun to see many many pieces all in a few days of each other.

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

I worked on my drawing for another 5 hours yesterday. You wouldn't think something so small would take so long! I'm using a lot of layers and using the colorless blender pen (it works really well!). I have had to redo the part that requires fine detail about 6 times. I looked at it again this morning, and decided I have to do some more erasing and starting over. I hope I don't ruin the surface of the paper!

Today is the day! I am going to get it right today..... It is turning out pretty well (other than that little area...but that area is pretty important).

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

Ha, Ha!!! Nice try Rick!!! It's driving you nuts huh.

Thank you Rosemary. I did do a little rubbing, and I use Derwent, but it's what I thought all along...push the darks. Burnishing it and some rubbing did fill those pesky "white flecks" of paper.

Thank you Robin. It is "pushing the darks". I struggle so much with that. I did shorten ,in my final coloring, the object you memtioned in order to get the effect I wanted. I think it does work well.

Driving you more crazy yet Rick ? I will not give the surprise away!!! I love surprises.

But I'm not patient....waiting for all the posts at the end is going to be torture!

Still having fun!

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

Yeah! I finally got started! It's gonna be nightwork, but I'll have to finish this in time. Line drawing and first 4 layers of background down (its gonna be blackish so 4 won't exactly be the end of it). I think it's going to be a succes, and I'm starting to like this size

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

I have to say I've seen some really lovely pieces framed with big fat mats around this size. They have a nice impact, and they don't take forever.

Who says they don't take forever?! I have been working on mine most of the day and I just can't seem to get the fine details done right! It is almost finished other than a small area. Robin, I will probably be sending it to you in a PM tomorrow if I don't get what I am after, and see what you think. I have thought about starting over several times, but I just keep plugging away. I have erased so much, I am afraid I will rub the paper off. I'm fairly satisfied with most of it!

I will probably be asking you tomorrow whether I should start over....and don't be afraid to give me an honest opinion.

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

Rick, I had a feeling my teasing might come back and bite me. You're going to taker forever to post yours at the end...aren't you. AAAAAAAG!
I just couldn't let your trying to trick me into posting go with out a little comeback.
Guess that side of me comes from putting up with brothers.

Still plugging along. Hope everyone is still having fun!

This has really been a learning and exciting adventure. I'm trying to push my darks more than ever before....hope I don't ruin it. My person will be so disapointed.

Till the end....
cindyv

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

Mine is coming along pretty well. I was thinking I could work on it more next week when the kids go back to school but I looks like I'll be getting a job so I need to push myself a bit. I love working this size I've done quit a few this size and they do look very good matted and framed.

Looking forward to seeing everyones.

Re: Colored Pencil Secret Art Exchange!!

Gee, thanks, Robin, for that glowing testimonial! Even though I have struggled, and the small size is a challenge, I'm still having fun!!! I'm looking forward to receiving my drawing. I love secrets!
