I can dream, can't I?
There are a couple of issues I had with this image. I really didn't like it as I was doing it, mainly because of the media. I've officially decided that I don't like working with color pencil. And that's funny because I LOVE working with graphite pencil. And, I love a lot of things that other artists (like Kathy Hare) do with it. But, I just don't think it's for me. I prefer to do detailed line drawings in ink and follow through with the "quick gratification" of watercolor - felt like I was layering and layering forever with the colored pencil!
I gave my cheap scanner a try and (gasp) found that it isn't the best for uploading art...at least for colored pencil and all of it's texture. I haven't tried other materials yet. But, I got it for $10 from a school that was closing down and it will have its uses around the house. I might return to photographing the art for a better picture.
