Toco Toucans by Catherine  Howell
Clear

I consider this a painting, even as it was rendered with colored pencils. There are so many layers that to me, it is kind of like painting, but with velvety dry, instead of wet media.

    This is just soooo grand, too! I quite enjoy coloured pencils myself – and I noticed that the really fat, triangular ones which I got for the kids’ little chubby fingers (frightfully expensive but lasting) work best. I can even work on darker papers and the colour will still glow … to be quite honest, I’ve even worked on photocopies (!) with them ;-))

  • Thnaks very much, Barbara! I love the Derwent Coloursoft Pencils. They are wonderfully soft and very rich. I use Faber Castell Polychromos for detail. They are a harder pencil and I can get a sharper point. I also use Prismacolors and some watercolor pencils.

    Orange and green are my two favourite colours, but even aside from that, this is wonderful.
