|Fall Leaves, 8 1/2" x 11", pen, ink, and colored pencil on 80 lb toned tan sketch paper.|
I found it was harder to achieve depth with the colored pencil, as the value was laid in with pen and ink. Although the instructor had told us in the first class that you can't add pen after adding the colored pencil, I had to find this out for myself. I wish I had added some more pen marks in some areas to achieve more depth. By the time I realized that, I already had the colored pencil added - Oops!
I have mixed feelings at this point about pen, ink, and colored pencil. I want to try pen, ink and watercolor, too. Then I can compare the two methods. More experiments and sketching!!
