Coloured Pencil "Paintings"

Hello Bloggers, I want to share with you my new passion - coloured pencil "paintings".  I'm hooked - it's fun to draw your own picture, then colour it (it is a lengthy process though).  The trick lies in applying the colour in layers to achieve depth.  In August I watched a YouTube technique tutorial, and the rest (they say) is history.......

 "Peonies and Roses" is my first "painting"
"Frog Peak" depicts a scene a few miles from my home (I need to work on landscapes)
"Wet Leaves" is my third "painting" and I'm rather proud of how it turned out.  I drew the cream coloured veins quite heavy in one of the first layers and they're still visible 3 layers later.

I use Prismacolor artist quality pencils, a colourless pencil crayon or solvent for blending, and touches of white acrylic paint.

Thanks for visiting,
