Playing with Colored Pencils: Woodgrain


I got busy and didn’t manage much drawing. I did this exercise from Beverley Johnston’s book The Complete Guide to Colored Pencil Techniques. It looks like it’s not in print anymore. That’s too bad, because it has great demonstrations in it, like how to draw and color satiny fabrics and animal fur. I’ll have to see if it is available on Alibris or something. Anyway, she gives permission to copy and share your version of the exercise, so I thought I would share mine. It’s not bad, but I still need a lot of practice. I had to return the book to the library so I couldn’t do much else. Colored pencil is fun to work with, but it takes so long. *sigh* I’m sticking with it though.
