Hosta - CP and Graphite

Hosta 11 x 12 inches

I am still in the process of experimenting with CP. As this was in the early days of my experimentation and as my previous experience was comprised primarily of graphite drawings, I decided to start with graphite as a grisaille and then layered over the top CP. It lacks depth, the colors are dirty and it could have had several more layers of CP pigment.

I was learning the response of the paper to pigment. The paper here is Strathmore Drawing Medium and the colored pencils are PrismaColors. This drawing strikes me as though I lack confidence.

This drawing was exhibited at Frame Station Gallery, Berwyn PA and was sold, 2012.
