Coloured pencils

March 31, 2012

I bought some colour pencils the other day, with the aim of producing some work to sell to put in my istock portfolio,

I’d done some simple lines of colour using colour pencils which sell OK, so thought I’d buy a new set and have a go at a well tried seller, a UK map, not the most exciting thing, but maps can sell well, so spent and hour this afternoon, tracing off a line map I’d drawn previously, fromĀ  a copyright free source at The University of Texas ( have to get these things right!), crouched over the lightbox, then starting to colour it in. They’re water soluble so once I’ve finished this one, I’ll scan it so I have a high res.digital copy, then apply some water to get some ( hopefully) nice effects, and also 2 separate files to upload.
