|study for "The Conversation", 8 x 10|
Good communication is as stimulating as black coffee and just as hard to sleep after.― Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea
Earlier in the week I rode my bicycle out to the local art store. They didn't have what I originally went there for, but in looking around I found a huge display of prismacolor colored pencils.
I didn't really need colored pencils as I have some derwent watercolor pencils, but the huge selection of colors were so enticing that I planted myself in front of the display. I bought three colors in the prismacolor premier line: french grey 30%, cool grey 50%, and powder blue. I already had a prismacolor colorless blender at home, so I was good to go.
Below you can see the succession of the above piece from pencil line drawing to the build up of color.

I want to add a second figure and will work on the second figure this week. Then I'll need to figure out how to fit them both on an 8 x 10 support. I already mail-ordered the supports so that size is pretty much settled.
What is your favorite colored pencil brand?
For a quick demo see the virtual instructor's video on this line of colored pencils.
