One of my latest colored pencil works that I want to share is this composition of a rose in a mug.
Before I start my painting, I will usually study the number of objects that I need to complete. In this painting, I easily identify three objects: the mug (black), the rose (peach) and the background (grey).
Why do I mention the mug first?
It's because the darkest value catches the eye first. I then move on to the medium value and finish with the lightest value.
Currently, I'm working on the mug. I washed the mug with Prismacolor Tuscan Red and layered it with Violet Blue.
