Boy did I ever have a ball doing this one! The colors were just out of the world.. like nothing you’d wear on the streets for sure.. but there was just something about this particular clown (might have been the green and purple!).. couldn’t pass it up.

    I still don’t know how you get wax pencils to look so intense – your colours are powerful while mine tend to look too weak. I know what you mean about using vibrant colours as a nice treat; they don’t often get used in regular artwork. Great picture!

  • Let me ask you this.. are you using Prismacolor or Derwent.. if it’s Prismacolor then you’re on my page. I layer HEAVILY and keep going (which kills my hand) until I get what I want. If you use colored pencils the way they tell you too you’ll never get the color I do. Good thing I didn’t know anything about them when I started.. sorta made it up as I went along..

    Good girl. I like artists who take little notice of the rule and guide books and go out on a limb to discover something new. You should be writing the books B; have you ever thought of it? I use Derwent as I can’t find Prismacolor to date. It’s your work as much as anything else which makes me determind to get results with pencils. Hope the painful hands aren’t causing too much of a problem, but you have my admiration in that you don’t let it beat you.

  • Ahhhhhh! That’s the problem.. Derwent doesn’t build up the same way. Now.. we are an international community.. search for Dick Blick art supplies (I don’t know if they ship international though) and you would be able to pick up just about anything.. at least take a look around.
    I have colored pencils in Prismacolor, Derwent, Faber-Castell, Brynzeel (I think that’s how you spell it) and another that I can’t remember – right now. Let me know what you think..
