It’s liberating working in color. But, I still intend to go slow, layer and correct along the way. The biggest challenge as I begin is creating accurate color matches to the photo. I think I won’t worry too much about exact matches. I’m trying layering color pencils to get just the right (or closest) hues. I’ve got a long, long way to go. I’m most fascinated by the yolk of the hard-boiled egg. And the red of the skin of the sliced radishes.
Color pencil is trickier than pure graphite. I will try to feel free and maybe less constrained than when I am drawing in black and white.
