Illustration Friday: Wet

"Wet", colored pencil and ink. 6 inches square

After the catastrophic muddy colors of the last IF I made, I decided to try out colored pencil sticks. Kind of like if oil pastels had babies with colored pencils.  An interesting exercise for the week, playing with the different lines and shades that the medium lends. I love that the color blending was able to come through, and it always feels good to loosen up after a few weeks of cutting tiny pieces of paper.
