Coloured pencil life drawing
Two girls in green and pink
Medium: Green and pink coloured pencil.
Creation time: Five minutes each.
I've never really tried life drawing with coloured pencils before. I have always thought the slight waxy texture of coloured pencil lead would be hard to work with, but I was surprised by how nice it felt! The colours look beautiful and they add an extra dimension to the drawing when you overlay poses in different colours. I like it so much that I'm going to try this again next week. :)

Three men in red pencil
Medium: Red pencil on art paper.
Creation time: 5 minutes each.
I was experimenting with a red pencil in these drawings. It's actually a big thick lead that you use in an automatic (clickable) pencil but I didn't have the pencil part. I just drew with the piece of lead by itself and I think it works better. You can get a lot more variety with your drawing strokes, even nice tonal ones by using the lead on it's side. you could never do that if it was held in a pencil. I think you can get these refills in different colours so I will try to find some.
In these drawings I made an effort to include as much anatomy as I could in the limited time available. There are some nice muscle shapes around the arms.
Standing man in brown
Medium: Brown Progresso on art paper.
Creation time: 20 minutes.
Not a great drawing. I drew this after a long break and it took me a long time to get back to my usual standard. Also see the same pose in Graphite pencil.
Sai in coloured pencil

This is a coloured pencil drawing of my good friend Sai. We spent an afternoon together painting and drawing and came up with lots of nice art. It was great fun!! =)
