Hi Michelle, your colour selection is beautiful. I'm new to coloured pencil. I'm wondering if I have the patience.  It seems to take a long time, but can be quite meditative.  What sort of paper did you use. Is it smooth or with some tooth. Did you build uup the colour slowly or just press hard with your pencils., I've been using prisma color pencils. They need to be applied in layers.  Great job. Look forward to your next one. Pauline
hi pauline im new to coloured pencil too , Im also useing prima colour pencils have  changed from originaly useing dewernt pencils to prisma . The paper I  drew on is not for coloured pencil , but have recently brought some paper for coloured pencil . Im looking forward to useing in the near future . I did layering but not at lot of layering . thank you for your comments take care michelle

I've got the derwent artist and the watercolour but the prismas are much softer and easier in some ways to use.  I've only recently been teaching myself to draw. I'm working through a book doing all the basics, things like learning to make texture, shading, values, perspective, how to draw faces, and recently I've been drawing some animals.  I'm not sure what I want to do so am experimenting with a little of this and that. I find it hard to get started though lol.

 

What other things do you do Michelle?

Nice work, Michelle!  Your color choices make the drawing very eye-catching.  You've definitely captured the essence of the playground.  I think the drawing could use some more shading in some areas, for instance on the sides of the structure that encloses the balls, and the floor, and maybe a bit more on the colored ladder on the left.  The shading on the pipes is very nice, especially the green and blue ones.  Just something to keep in mind for next time.  Each drawing you make is a learning process and you'll always pick up new techniques and skills for next time, even if you're not aware of it.  I look forward to seeing your next colored pencil piece!
hi thaneeya thank you for your  advise to my drawing of the little fun house , I used the wrong paper for the drawing is was starting to tear and thats why i had to stop the constant layering , but have bought some paper expecially for coloured pencil and hope to the near future do a coloured pencil drawing on it have done some more coloured pencil work in the past would love to know what you think  cheerio michelle

Hi Michelle, I'm using mainly graphite to learn. I find it easier in terms of rubbing things out and am constantly changing things. I try not to have big expectations of a masterpiece, but just to enjoy the process.  Bye for now Pauline

Hi Michelle I'm new to using colour pencil too and I use Prisma's I find them lovely to work with. I will post a photo of the two I have done when I can work out how to Lol! I love your work. Jan

Hi, I enjoy using coloured pencils and am also using the prismacolour range which are lovely to use after an initial set of cheaper ones. Coloured pencils are so easy to use without preparation or mess and can be used anywhere
