I painted this particular piece when i was really up for a challenge, not that i’m not nowdays, its just i had more time then than now, or so it seems.
I hadn’t been using coloured pencils long when i decided i would like to challenge myself to produce something that woud take some time but also be satisfiying along the way, and with a sense of achievment to boot.
As i didn’t have that much experience i decided to try and follow a tutorial by someone else, now began the task of hunting down something i felt i wanted to do and where to find it. There were a few pictures in books that i liked but i wasn’t confident enough to go it alone, as parts of the pictures were quite detailed and had a depth of colour i could never attain off my own back, i definately needed some help.
On searching for a suitable pattern i came across an Australian lady doing just the sort of thing i was interested in, her name is Karen Hull and her site is Here . I hope you agree, she has lots of lovely patterns and advice there for anyone to be interested in doing, and she is a lovely person too, if you need questions answering, she will reply.
