A few flowers

Sorry, the lighting wasn’t great when I took the photos. I like the first one the best. The brown on the last one is a bit overbearing.

Band of colours

Coloured pencil on paper

This is my attempt at capturing the band of colours I mentioned here. Pretty subtle. It took some observing to be able to distinguish the colours, and even then, it’s probably quite subjective.

Coloured pencils

I was stoked to pick these up yesterday (a birthday present bought with some money from my mum). They’re lovely and soft and loaded with pigment. Look forward to doing some coloured sketches.

What to do when you’re scared of colour

I’m not scared of colour, but I am definitely early in the learning phase and trying to get more comfortable and confident with it. So, these seem like great suggestions to help with that. (Although the article is focused on drawing, I’m sure painters will find it helpful.)

Aside from actually working with paint, which I intend to do more of because that’s ultimately what I want to do, I’ve ordered some nice coloured pencils to introduce more colour to my drawing. I’m sure that will help with my colour skills when I come to paint.
