 :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:  these pencil only cost 10.95 gbp for 48 because the box was broken - amazon warehouse they are chinese very pigmented though if you compare say the dark blue with a holbein blue there is no contest but then holbein are a hybred mix of wax and oil and extremely pigmented also extremely expensive..

I have been working on this picture 3 out of the last 4 days. I have been wanting to do this picture for ages but kept putting it back as too hard. This is my first attempt at it.

Title: Practice pieces#11
Post by: Abbietaya on November 07, 2019, 10:00:32 PM
I have been working on this little guy all week. The paper is from a pad called ‘paint on it’ it was a free sample. It has a tooth - its not bad - it was free - jury is out on it.
I made the mistake of taking the top page out, when i got down to work on the jacket i found there were indented diagonal lines which stop my plan of doing a tartan style pattern.
I wasn’t sure whether to add a background or not!

beautiful job Abbie :yippee: :yippee: :yippee:

I don't think a background is required. The current colour works well as a complimentary background O0

Thankyou, i was going to play on a piece of rough paper to see best colour for background but i agree to leave well alone.
