Coloured Pencil

Allows for great detail but coloured pencils do not lend themselves to blending, as do graphite pencils, by ‘smudging’ techniques. Instead I achieve gradation of colour or tone by cross-hatching to create an optical effect. Coloured pencil work is intricate and time consuming but it can be very effective.
