Crystal Candy Dish - WIP

For about six months now, I have been reading several blogs of other daily artists and have found some very good colored pencil artists. It's been a great way to learn about technique and what's current in your medium. Since one of the blog I follow closely is Nicole Caulfield's, I was very intersted in her use of solvent with colored pencil on pastel board. So, I thought I'd give it a try.

Here's my attempt at a small colored pencil drawing on a 5 x 7" Ampersand Pastel Board. I decided to burnish the drawing using Turpenoid Natural, which when used this way, is almost like painting. Quite a lot of fun. I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Thanks for the idea, Nicole!
