This month, I really liked the photo, but, for some reason, the motivation wasn't there. Maybe it was the holiday stress, who knows? But I got more and more into it as I kept working on it, and I'm pleased with the result.
I recently found out that Stonehenge makes
120 lb paper. I had to give it a try. It's pretty nice, but closer to
watercolor cold press paper, so not as smooth as the regular 90 lb. I
had to use mineral spirit with the first layer to cover the paper
better. I don't think I'll use this paper again with colored pencils,
but I'll have to try it with watercolor.
So this is it; one full year of CPM challenges! I told myself I had to do it, and I did.
been fun, and, I must say, I learned a lot. Being used to use mostly
black paper, I had to get out of my comfort zone, but I ended up trying
many different pencils and papers.
Thank you Colored Pencils Magazine for helping me grow, and thank you Sally for your beautiful photos.
don't know if I'll be able to participate in all the challenges in 2016
because I have to prepare for a show. But you never know...
Happy 2016 everyone!
