Here is my desk. All set up with my sets of watercolour pencils.
I have been studying some coloured pencil techniques on youtube and to get some practice in I thought I would try my hand at an animal portrait and took a look on google images and decided on a Jack Russell.
This is the first time I have attempted an animal portrait but I am quite pleased how it turned out.
I used a water brush to activate the first layer of watercolour pencil then left subsequent layers dry and used a 5B pencil and a paper stump to shade the body.
I hope to keep improving my shading skills with more practice but I have already picked up a lot of tips from watching some very talented coloured pencil artists on-line.
