My project for Colored Pencil Play Date 2015 was Snowy Owl in the Arctic Sky. The question I posed was how do you paint a white animal or bird. We can’t just paint it white! How do we make it interesting? Pan pastels were used in the background to set the scene and Prismacolor Premiere pencils used to render the Snowy Owl.
Now we come to Colored Pencil Play Date 2016 and the question for me (and hopefully YOU), is how to paint an black animal or bird. We can’t just paint it black!! This time I used Creative Imaginations Radiant Rains for the background, feeling that my crow might prefer a shimmering backdrop! My project is called I Love Crows.

Here is a little watercolour I painted en plein air at La Finca Del Nino. I was trying to put into practice things like creating interest by making sure I used hard edges, soft edges and broken edges within the painting. I have my interesting shadow colour of Cerulean Blue and Opera Rose with just a titch of Burnt Sienna. I mixed a super dark black with Paynes Grey and Brown Madder. I have saved some of the white paper which is very hard to do! But I think I’m beginning to capture the look of dabbled light.
And for my reward I get to paint a cat! This is Smokey who lives at La Finca Del Nino. I still tried to remember all the above points!!
