Back to my colored pencils. I'm doing a small piece - an espresso caramel in a wrapper.
Its getting there. Even though its small, its still work. Doing a small piece isn't any easier - it just doesn't take as long. But I'm finding that after doing painterly digital for a while now, my eyes are having to retrain themselves to see details again. Colored pencils also take me into a 'zone', which digital does not.
I'd like to do this one as a series of four - one from the other side (which looks very different); one that's just the caramel, unwrapped; and one of just the empty wrapper.
The wrapper is a sort of waxed paper, and the caramel itself is very dark (since it has espresso in it), so the colors here are a challenge - not what you would normally think of when you think "a caramel in a wrapper".
And oh, its 4 x 4 inches, and Polychromos on Stonehenge (surprise!). I have some new pencils that I do want to try, but my default setting is Polys.
