I have been remiss in updating my blog(s) these past months. I hope I can spend more time posting on this web log as I want to spend more time with my colored pencils. Hopefully the two will go hand in hand.
Created using Prismacolor Verithin pencils, Gamsol and blending stumps to remove the wax buildup and achieve a bit of blending. The paper is a page in my rarely used cheap sketch book.
Finally completed my colored pencil drawing of a jackrabbit. It is from a photo I took several years ago. I thought he or she was a splendid looking rabbit. Hope I did it justice. The 5″ x 7″ drawing has been scanned, enhanced and printed as note cards. The original will be shown in our local art show this month.
Just about finished with the body of the jackrabbit. Using the iPad app, Artrage, to play with backgrounds before putting pencil to paper. Used Filterstorm to prepare rabbit photo for import to Artrage.
