Polychromos Pencils: The Vase

I ordered some Polychromos pencils, even though I knew that the
quality came from the artist and not the tools. This is my first
piece. It is very small, 3.75" x 5.75." It also did not scan very
well. But it is not as smooth as the work of certain other artists,
of course.

This is not in mole. It's in a little hardbound sketchbook that came
from Jerry's Artarama with my order.

Thanks Mary, I've heard good things about these pencils. The page looks great too - looks like a place I'd love to visit.

Thanks so much, Steve. :-D

They make a nice rich color. (after a number of layers.)

ah, you found some! the colours are great, aren't they? POW! it's looking good, Mary.

I ordered them online from Jerry's Artarama 'cause I couldn't fine 'em around here.

They are pretty bright! I'm not as good with them as you are, though!

I need to explore more supplies, I am so stuck in my pen addiction. ;) Thanks for sharing Mary.
