Rediscovering pencil crayons

pink purple

Spent my first day of vacation drawing (and subsequently straining my shoulder) and gorging on nectarines… my idea of a good time :)

Tried something new– changing the order of “blue pencil sketch – pencil outline – ink” to “pencil sketch – blue pencil outline – colour pencil.” It’s an interesting effect, but the blue tends to smudge into everything else. The scanner also tends to skew the colour quite a bit, and the browser too. The original looks much better, I think.

I also got ridiculously happy over buying a new gluestick today. Such a practical tool! Between the gluestick and the pencil crayons, I really felt like I was in elementary school again :D
