Playing with Color Pencils

Hi everyone!!! Happy MAY!
I have a new technique article up today highlighting color pencils.  I've been asked so many times how I color my images and this month I'm happy to tell you...I've made a VIDEO!!!

Here's a quick peek at how the flower image looks when finished.


And now for your viewing pleasure....


Oh and some of you have asked where to find the white eraser that I use.  I find mine at office supply stores but found that Pentel sells them online.  HERE's the link

It's a beautiful Spring day here in Northern Illinois, this girl is going to get herself outside!!!

Enjoy!!
