Colored pencil still life, final piece for my colored pencil studies.
Funny thing, I ended up with this still life because the day we were to start in class I  left my box of objects at home so I compromised by taking off my boot and scarf and using random objects from the class cabinets.

Colorful shoes

Shoe studies with colored pencils.
So glad to be finished with this assignment from my drawing 2 class, I was really unsure how it would turn out since I've never done this medium to this extreme, but I feel I've overcome that now.

Back to Traditional art

Watercolor and ink (first time using speedball pen).  It always take awhile for my mind to settle away from critically comparing it to the original. Wanting to be perfect I always want to add and adjust until it's as close as I can get it to the real thing but now after a few minutes away from it I'm delighted with how well it came out.
Here's an interesting comparison, little under a year ago from now I did an in-class assignment of a water colored skull, similar to the one I did today. And as it shows I've changed a bit.
