EDM #62 Draw a previous challenge in a different medium
My daughter brought home a beautiful daylily yesterday. She told me that she would love to grow them after seeing this flower. It was an unusually deep shade of orange/red. I have seen some really lovely colored pencil drawings where they say they layer up to 20 colors and layers to get the depth of color etc and I have been dying to play. I used to do colored pencils but not with any true knowledge of how to use them and they always were just a nice soft picture. I am really please with my first attempt and want to get more familar with this medium again. I want to know how they are burnishing the colors down etc. Seems like I just have to have my fingers into everything!
