I think I Can, I think I Can

Well, here is another attempt at using my WC Pencils for my class with artist Cathy Johnson. I started out using Derwent WC Pencils but had heaps of trouble getting the colors deep enough and the values, well, they just did not want to cooperate at all. So, feeling that the painting was lost, I dug out my new Lyra Aquacolor crayons and started laying them in. They are a lot creamier then the pencils and were able to cover the paper much easier.

I like the bottom of the picture but the top didn't turn out as I hoped. But with practice, I will improve. I know I can, I know I can, I know I can.

Lucky you, doing that class. I'm kicking myself for not doing it, but I HAVE got the CD on the way. You're getting great results. I am phasing out my Derwents and moving on to the Albrecht Durers.
