Tools of the Trade
7 in x 5 in
Derwent drawing pencils on Canson MiTeintes paper
Might try this again...I love the color range of these pencils, but I didn't like their softness on this textured paper. The leads are so soft that it is impossible to get a sharp point - they are almost like chalk or pastel pencils.

I like what you did with them! The light and reflections are fantastic. Are they coloursoft pencils?

Ann, you are always so encouraging! Thank you :D. No, they aren't coloursoft - I have a few of those. These are similar though, but a brown barrel instead of red, I think they are meant to be good for natural subjects - earthy tones. They are gorgeous, but the crumbly aspect was more than frustrating....
