Sometimes, in between 'real' jobs, I do something like this. Its kind of like a nice lemon sorbet between the fish and meat courses. It lets the mind rest a bit from doing representational art, and is more meditative and intuitive. Its nice to still be 'coloring', but not have the pressure of having to create something specific, or be so exacting.
This is all Polychromos on Stonehenge.
I've ordered some Fabriano Artistico hot press paper which should be here any minute. I'm anxious to try it out (can't believe I never have before.) I like that it can take paint, but also seems to be a favorite for colored pencils. And it works on a light box.
And now I'm in the mood for lemon sorbet. (I doubt the ice cream truck guy has any.) Oh well.
