Update on Roses. I think it's starting to work with the dark background.

This is a CP painting. I have used both F-C CP and Prisma CP. It's A3 size..not showing the full size with scanning. The paper is Canson 220 gsm paper
This is not really at a good stage, but I thought I would start it as a WIP. So far I am not happy with the very dark background but will see how it progresses.

©Doreen CrossI have been busy doing a challenge for http://pencil-painting.ning.com/ It's an interesting challenge in Color Pencil. I used a mixture of pencils because I don't yet have all the colors in the Prisma CP I used both Prisma and Polychromos.
It's good to have a love of many subjects. still life, portraits, I don't have a great love of landscapes but maybe one day I will try.

Thought I would show you my art supplies... I love my art toys. don't you ?
i have purchased even more pencils since I took this photo. I am so happy ...I have found an art shop in Australia that have Prismacolor Pencils..open stock... I have to order online..but that's a small price to pay to get the pencils you want.
