I'm now starting the coloured pencils section of my drawing in colour course. To get a feel for them, I did these last night.
Caesar managed to stay still for a few minutes so I just about captured his contours. It was fun playing with the different shadings for his fur.
Then he went and sat on Paul so I did another quick sketch, below.
What I realised is that I need to layer or build up the colours a lot more when using coloured pencils, as they come out fairly faint otherwise. This is the first time I've tried to draw Paul from life since December or January...I just gotta keep trying!
