All tagged Botanical Colored Pencil Art
Since the announcement of these new pencils from Derwent, there has been a lot of worry that Derwent are doing away with a pencil line in order to make way for the new range, I can tell you now with good authority that this is absolutely not the case. The new Derwent Lightfast are simply an addition to an already amazing range of pencils to fulfil any artists thirst for creativity.
I absolutely love looking at botanical art, especially colored pencil and watercolor art in this genre, so I decided to give it a go for the very first time. Ordinarily if I was going to do a piece like this I would have recorded it for a speed drawing and I would have used my special paper, the Strathmore 500 Series Bristol Plate, however, I wasn't very confident and was quite cautious.
