Colored Pencil Observation Study ~ Complete by ArtBYbeverly Colored Pencil Observation Study ~ Complete by ArtBYbeverly
 Well, this was an ambitious undertaking, but then again, that's me, I love a challenge! I really like how it turned out, with painstaking layers of color and depth starting from the lightest value to the darkest, as you do in colored pencils. I couldn't include the original, because I would have needed to crop too much of my drawing out...but you can see the WIP 1 & 2 for the original reference.

Anyway, The drawing was rendered freehand like all my other artwork, with a ruler and careful observation. My artwork was drawn with an HB pencil only, and I used Prismacolor and Derwent colored pencils to complete it. The paper was nothing special, just a sketch block for dry medium usage.

Full Credit goes to the owner of the original artwork, (no name is given on the back or front of the calendar) and I believe it was done in oils or acrylics.
**This work is not intended to break any copyright laws, but intended solely as a visual observation study only and will be kept in my portfolio as such.

UPDATE: The L&P brand and Coca Cola company on Facebook liked my drawing so much they sent a case of L&P drink to my home, how cool is that!! :)

Soo nice Beverely!  I am still looking at all the little details.  I am looking at the lightest value and then to the darkest.  So much work to do this.  It truly amazes me how you and others can make something so beautiful.  It seems so hard to do.
